This human voice conveys important information about the speaker such as age, gender, emotional state, sobriety, truthfulness, illness, etc. In this course, we will examine a variety of issues surrounding the complexity of the human voice, such as the role voice plays in gender identity, sexual orientation, and in determining emotions and physical appearance. We will also discuss acting and singing voices, and voice disorders. Grading will be based on lab projects and readings. Prerequisite(s): LING 100  or LING 104  or LING 200  or LING 205 . Alternate spring semesters. (4 Credits)
