Matt Posted March 1, 2012 Share Posted March 1, 2012 studying sociology and sociolinguistics is screwing my brain up. so much stuff we all think are physical facts that are nothing but cultural labels and constructions. Anyway, mildly related to this forum, I thought this was quite interesting: â€œThatâ€™s the point about the adaption process. Their effects, which are effects of modernity, overall effects - for example, that womenâ€™s voices have changed â€“ that was so amazing to see, for me. As you know, Iâ€™m also a trained mediator and I do training in communication, negotiation, mediation for lawyers and the judiciary, and this has made me study voices too, and these days, women talk with deeper voices which, for me, was part of this adaptation processâ€ So, even the gender bound pitch of our voices is, to at least a degree, a cultural power game... * Schultz, U.
