Clear, Energized Speech

Lecture no. 16 from the course: Mastering Stage Presence: How to Present to Any Audience

Clear, Energized Speech

Taught by Professor Melanie M. Long | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Now study the tools that make speech clear and energized. Consider how vowels carry the feeling behind words, and practice clearly pronouncing our language’s 20 vowel sounds, including pure vowels and diphthongs. Continue with consonants, both plosives and continuants, building awareness of how consonants communicate meaning and create emphasis.
