The contents of this little book formed the subject of three lectures delivered at the
Royal Institution "On the Mechanism of the Human Voice" and three London
University lectures at King's College on "The Brain in relation to Speech and
Song." | have endeavoured to place this subject before my readers in as simple
language as scientific accuracy and requirements permit. Where | have been
obliged to use technical anatomical and physiological terms | have either
explained their meaning in the text, aided by diagrams and figures, or | have given
in brackets the English equivalents of the terms used. | trust my attempt to give a
sketch of the mechanism of the human voice, and how it is produced in speech
and song, may prove of interest to the general public, and | even hope that
teachers of voice production may find some of the pages dealing with the brain
mechanism not unworthy of their attention.
