2021.10.14 – 0287 – The Synonym Intonation Substitution.

Here’s a quick way to work out whether you should be ‘colouring a synonym’: simply put into effect The Synonym Intonation Substitution.

This is: take a word or phrase that you think may be a synonym for something you have already said, and replace it with that first mention. Then read those same sentences again – with the repeated word in both. If you naturally drop the second reference (as you likely will), then:

· You need to drop it again when you revert back to using its synonym

· You need to consider whether you need to use the synonym at all – and drop that word entirely.

So, if we have “A man’s been stabbed on Epsom Common. He was attacked as he walked on wasteland near the Wells estate.”

· Hmmm do I need to raise or lower “wasteland”?

· Test it out by replacing “wasteland” with the word(s) you think it may be a synonym for

· This gives you “A man’s been stabbed on Epsom Common. He was attacked as he walked on Epsom Common near the Wells estate.”

· Read it out loud and realise that you naturally drop your intonation on the second reference to “Epsom Common”

· Revert back to the original script, vowing to now un-colour the word “wasteland” – as it means the same as “Epsom Common”

· And then you could consider dropping the word “wasteland” as well, so the sentence is a simpler read: “A man’s been stabbed on Epsom Common. He was attacked as he walked near the Wells estate.”

Try it yourself with this copy: “Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza are being take off the government’s green travel list - following a surge in coronavirus cases on the Spanish islands. It means holiday makers - who haven't been fully vaccinated will have to quarantine for ten days.”

Peter has been around voice and audio all his working life and has trained hundreds of broadcasters in all styles of radio from pop music stations such as Capital FM and BBC Radio 1 to Heart FM, the classical music station BBC Radio 3 and regional BBC stations. He’s trained news presenters on regional TV, the BBC News Channel and on flagship programmes such as the BBC’s Panorama. Other trainees have been music presenters, breakfast show hosts, travel news presenters and voice-over artists.

He has written a number of books on audio and video presentation and production (“Essential Radio Journalism”, “JournoLists”, two editions of “Essential Radio Skills” and three editions of “Broadcast Journalism”) and has written on voice and presentation skills in the BBC’s in-house newspaper “Ariel”.

Peter has presented hundreds of radio shows (you may have heard him on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 4, Virgin Radio or Kiss, as well as BBC regional radio) with formats as diverse as music-presentation, interview shows, ‘special’ programmes for elections and budgets, live outside broadcasts and commentaries and even the occasional sports, gardening and dedication programmes. He has read several thousand news bulletins, and hosted nearly 2,000 podcast episodes, and is a vocal image consultant advising in all aspects of voice and speech training for presenters on radio and TV, podcasts and YouTube, voiceovers and videocalls.

The podcast title refers to those who may wish to change their speaking voice in some way. It is not a suggestion that anyone should, or be pressured into needing to. We love accents and dialects, and are well aware that how we speak changes over time. The key is: is your voice successfully communicating your message, so it is being understood (and potentially being acted upon) by your target audience?

This podcast is London-based and examples are spoken in the RP (Received Pronunciation) / standard-English / BBC English pronunciation, although invariably applicable to other languages, accents and dialects.
