Speech Therapy -> Intelligibility -> Volume and Resonance

Volume and Resonance

Volume and Resonance are the perceived loudness of the speaker and the airflow of speech through the vocal tract. For example, errors of resonance could be hypernasal (too much air coming out the nose) orhyponasal (not enough air coming out the nose for nasal sounds).
