Vocal Cues


They can help listeners understand the meaning of words and the intentions behind them.

Vocal cues are aspects of speech that convey meaning or convey information about a speaker’s attitudes, emotions, or intentions.

These can include things like tone of voice, pronunciation, enunciation, pausing, volume, pitch, and pace of speaking. They can be very important in communication, as they can help listeners understand the meaning of words and the intentions behind them.

A speaker’s tone of voice may convey sarcasm, anger, or excitement, even if the words themselves do not convey this information. Additionally, vocal cues can help speakers convey emotions and attitudes, and can be used to influence or persuade listeners.

Some examples of vocal cues include:
  • Tone of voice:
    The tone of voice refers to the overall quality of a speaker’s voice, which can convey emotions, attitudes, and intentions. For example, a speaker may use a flat, monotone voice to convey boredom or disinterest, or may use a high-pitched, excited voice to convey enthusiasm.
  • Pronunciation:
    The extent to which we articulate words clearly and distinctly.
    Example: It’s “Pronunciation” not “Pronounciation.”
  • Enunciation:
    It’s the way we say words and it’s based upon our upbringing and the part of the country we live in.
    It might be a Southern accent or maybe a Boston accent.
  • Pausing:
    It’s being silent and it’s tough for many speakers.
    I’m the speaker! Shouldn’t I be speaking?
    But pausing can be super, super powerful!
  • Volume:
    The volume of a speaker’s voice refers to the loudness or softness of their speech. Speakers may use volume to convey emotion or to emphasize certain words or points. For example, a speaker may raise their voice to convey anger or excitement, or may speak more quietly to convey intimacy or confidentiality.
  • Pitch:
    The pitch of a speaker’s voice refers to the highness or lowness of their voice. Speakers may use pitch to convey emotion or to emphasize certain words or points. For example, a speaker may raise the pitch of their voice to convey excitement or enthusiasm, or may lower the pitch of their voice to convey seriousness or authority.
  • Pace:
    The pace of a speaker’s voice refers to the speed at which they speak. Speakers may use a faster pace to convey excitement or enthusiasm, or may use a slower pace to convey seriousness or contemplation.
    Often, because of nerves, many speakers speak too quickly.

Vocal cues plus facial expressions, gestures and changes in posture can combine to make specific points to an audience.

Overall, vocal cues are an important aspect of communication and can help convey meaning, emotions, and intentions in speech.
