This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the key concepts discussed in the preceeding chapters of this book. Attention has been directed to the relation between articulation and meaning, and the relation between tone and feeling. Thought and feeling must now be considered to be one with articulation. Rib-reserve is the answer to audibility as far as this depends upon breathing, for, by maintaining a reserve in the lungs. But audibility depends also upon the technical management of inflection. To project successfully, and yet not obviously, one must have forward diction. Voice and mind are seen to be inter-dependent if the finest results are to be achieved. The general pattern of the theme is always heard at the same time that the variations upon it are perceived. When an impression of finality is to be given, the voice must often, but by no means always, reproduce a falling inflectional pattern.
