Inflection and Intonation

Inflection is the modulation of the voice and a change in the form of a word, which is dependant on the change in tense, mood, voice, gender, and person. It is usually an affixation or modification (Collins, 2015a).

In linguistics intonation is the sound pattern of phrases and sentences by pitch and variation in the voice. Intonation is the rise and fall of voice in speaking (Collins, 2015 b)

These two terms will be an important part my practice, as they will help me change and emphasise the type depending on the intonation (the rise and fall in pitch and inflection- the way a word spoken-tone of voice.
