New speech pattern of young women: ‘Vocal fry’

NBC’s chief medical editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman reports on a new trend called “vocal fry,” a speech pattern of low, rough sounds that’s popular with pop stars and entertainers.

Defining glottal fry:
the raspy or croaking ("froglike") quality of the voice in its lowest register. It results from loose closure of the glottis that allows air to bubble through, giving rise to a series of low-pitched pops and rattles.
