Voice

The word voice has many definitions:

  • The tone of a piece of writing, influenced by its point of view.

  • In phonetics and phonology, a phone or phoneme is said to be voiced if it is produced with the vocal folds vibrating. In English, r, m, z, and all vowels are examples of voiced segments. Segments that are produced without the vocal folds vibrating (such as Englisn t, s, and f) are called unvoiced or voiceless.
