    Tone of voice reflects psychological arousal, emotion, and mood. It may also carry social information, as in a sarcastic, superior, or submissive manner of speaking.

    1. "The more threatened or aggressive an animal becomes, the lower and harsher its voice turns--thus, the bigger it seems."

    2. People unconsciously adapt to each other's voice tones. When two people converse, the person whose low-frequency [i.e., dominant] vocal characteristics change the least is perceived by both as having the higher social status"

    3. A significant number of voice qualities are universal across human cultures, (though they are subject to cultural modification and shaping.

    (1). Around the world, adults use higher pitched voices to speak to infants and young children. The softer pitch is innately "friendly," and suggests a nonaggressive pose.

    (2). With each other, men and women use higher pitched voices in greetings and in courtship, to show harmlessness and to invite physical closeness.

    (3). In almost every language, speakers use a rising intonation to ask a question. The higher register appeases the request for information, and is often accompanied by diffident palm-up gestures and submissive shoulder-shrugs (for neurological links between tone of voice and these cues, see SPECIAL VISCERAL NERVE).

    ( 4). The human brain is programmed to respond with specific emotions to specific vocal sounds (see, e.g., CRY, Infancy; MUSIC, Neuro-notes I; STARTLE REFLEX, Neuro-notes).
