Question The "voice" of our written word

Question : Question The "voice" of our written word : 6176

Question

The "voice" of our written word is as important as the message itself. It's equivalent to our "tone of voice" when we are communicating verbally. A friendly voice increases the chance of a free and open exchange between sender and receiver. A serious, professional voice gives importance to a topic and is likely to encourage attentiveness. An abrupt, curt voice can create a negative reaction on the part of the receiver (even if it's not intended) and makes the receiver less likely to understand and embrace your idea. Share your personal experience with someone who, in writing or verbally, used a tone of voice that created a negative response. Comment on another student's posts -- what would you have done in the situation they described?
