VOICE FOR " LITTLE BOY"

When a child speaks he almost invariably does so in a high- pitched tone, more or less directing the sound through his nose. This being so, the "theek" voice is the one most suitable for him. The similarity between it and the speech used for the " old woman " may be avoided by speaking in a somewhat lower tone, and in a simpler and more disjointed fashion. 

Suppose, for instance, that you ask the little boy a question? Get him to repeat that question after you, and give the answer in short, jerky, broken sentences. 

For the "little girl" use a slightly higher tone, without directing the sound through the nose. In her case also the mode of expression must be childish, but with slightly more refinement. 

The voice for the "coster" is with the "grunt" order. The "old man" voice is used, with the addition of the peculiar coster twang. 

Place the chords as when using the " grunt " voice, breathing rather heavily, and force the sound as far back in the throat as possible, at the same time contracting the muscles of the stomach while the breath is being expelled. 

The word " yah! yah! " is a very good one upon which to practice, and the vowel sound should be sustained to some length.
