Voice \Voice\, noun [OE. vois, voys, OF. vois, voiz, F. voix, L. vox, vocis, akin to Gr. ? a word, ? a voice, Skr. vac to say, to speak, G. erw[aum]hnen to mention. Cf. {Advocate}, {Advowson}, {Avouch}, {Convoke}, {Epic}, {Vocal}, {Vouch}, {Vowel}.]

1. Sound uttered by the mouth, especially that uttered by human beings in speech or song; sound thus uttered considered as possessing some special quality or character; as, the human voice; a pleasant voice; a low voice.

He with a manly voice saith his message. --Chaucer.

Her voice was ever soft, Gentle, and low; an excellent thing in woman. --Shak.

2. (Phon.) Sound of the kind or quality heard in speech or song in the consonants b, v, d, etc., and in the vowels; sonant, or intonated, utterance; tone; -- distinguished from mere breath sound as heard in f, s, sh, etc., and also whisper.

Note: Voice, in this sense, is produced by vibration of the so-called vocal cords in the larynx (see Illust. of {Larynx}) which act upon the air, not in the manner of the strings of a stringed instrument, but as a pair of membranous tongues, or reeds, which, being continually forced apart by the outgoing current of breath, and continually brought together again by their own elasticity and muscular tension, break the breath current into a series of puffs, or pulses, sufficiently rapid to cause the sensation of tone. The power, or loudness, of such a tone depends on the force of the separate pulses, and this is determined by the pressure of the expired air, together with the resistance on the part of the vocal cords which is continually overcome. Its pitch depends on the number of aerial pulses within a given time, that is, on the rapidity of their succession. See Guide to Pronunciation, [sect][sect] 5, 146, 155.

3. The tone or sound emitted by anything.

After the fire a still small voice. --1 Kings xix. 12.

Canst thou thunder with a voice like him? --Job xl. 9.

4. The faculty or power of utterance; as, to cultivate the voice.

My voice is in my sword. --Shak.

6. Opinion or choice expressed; judgment; a vote.

Sic. How now, my masters! have you chose this man? 1 Cit. He has our voices, sir. --Shak.

Some laws ordain, and some attend the choice Of holy senates, and elect by voice. --Dryden.

7. Command; precept; -- now chiefly used in scriptural language.

{Chest voice} (Phon.), a kind of voice of a medium or low pitch and of a sonorous quality ascribed to resonance in the chest, or thorax; voice of the thick register.
