Have you ever thought about all the different words we can use to describe a voice?
Let’s play a little game. We’ve collected some of the more unique and interesting words used to describe voices. Challenge us and let us know what you came up with!
Let’s do this:
Husky voice – most of us have a deep and hoarse voice when we’re sick, but a husky voice is actually considered a sexy voice by many (raise hand).
Silvery voice – yes, silvery! That usually means a clear, light and pleasant voice. Think of a cartoon princess singing in an enchanted forest kind of voice.
Toneless voice – a kind of voice that basically means, trouble is coming. Run!
Modulated voice – the kind of voice that teachers or doctors often use. It’s pleasant and controlled, without too many emotions.
Honeyed voice – people who speak in a honeyed voice only sound nice. Don’t trust them.
Gravelly voice – a low and rough voice. Some people (hmm) might consider a gravelly voice to be kind of attractive.
Brittle voice – when you are so choked up that you just know that the tears are a few seconds away.
Foghorn voice – Just. Too. Loud.
Disembodied voice – who’s there? Who’s talking?! Does someone have an invisible cloak and didn’t tell us??
Breathy voice – in some scenarios, breathy voice is super awesome. In others, well, not so much…
