Modulation by linking words smoothly

September 27, 2008

One of the peculiarities of the moments where I talk fluently is when I modulate my speech to link smoothly the end of a word with the beginning of the next one. This generally is executed talking slower and relaxing as much as I can. It often emphasises vocal phonems in the next word to avoid difficulties in explosive sounds – my favourites for getting blocked.

The degree of difficulty depends on the situation but the results are quite good. The listener seems comfortable with this calmed and musical way of talking. Emphasis on the next word’s vocal makes the word less understable but it is oftenly not noticed – people usually get meaning unconsciously by the context, not listening to each word.
