Enunciation At It’s Finest

One of the things I struggle the most with is enunciating.

Being a Country, Southern girl it’s not too hard to understand why.

Only since I’ve started recording videos, have I noticed I have a lazy tongue.

My most troubling word seems to be “your” which always seems to come out as “yo”. Now that I’m working on it, it cracks me up everytime it appears.

One of my most recent clients does not have that problem. Joelle Lydon has one of the most clear voices that I’ve had a chance to work with.

She also takes her time to get her words out and she doesn’t ramble after making her thought. She let her thoughts stand on their own before overly elaborating and explaining away that thoughts’ power.

The other thing that came through was how much passion she puts into her words. You feel her conviction as she paints solutions with her words.

I love when clients let me play. Joelle let me come up with the wording that breaks up her video. It felt so good to know that I capture her sentiments.

Joelle seems like a natural Jalanda. I know from my own experience shooting videos that it just takes some time before you feel comfortable making them and the words will start to flow.

Like you, I’m from the south so I do a lot of ums and ya’ll… Heck, I talk like that in real life so I don’t realize I’m doing the majority of the time. I just hope people accept me how I am and understand that’s just who I am.

Great job with the video wording, you captured it very well.

Ahh thanks Adrienne. I seem to live on Uhms and Ahhs. Sometimes I remove them but most times I keep them in. If it feels more real then I leave it in.

I totally agree. It takes a little while to warm up to being on camera. But the funny thing is as people warm up, they become more salesy. Which comes across on video as not being real. There is a fine balance.

Love your videos. Thanks for checking out my site.
