CADENCE HOW DOES IT APPLY TO READING?

CADENCE                                    HOW DOES IT APPLY TO READING?

OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD TODAY IS CADENCE.  CADENCE IS VERY IMPORTANT WHEN  READING ANYTHING ALOUD.  HAVE YOU EVER HAD SOMEONE READ TO YOU?  PERHAPS INSIDE A CLASSROOM, YOU’VE HEARD SOMEONE STAND UPFRONT AND READ A POEM OR A BOOK.  CADENCE ALSO APPLIES TO SONGS AND HOW THEY ARE SUNG IN TONE AND PITCH.  LET US TAKE A LOOK AT THE WEBSTER DEFINITION OF CADENCE AND THE DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION.  WEBSTER DEFINITION OF CADENCE-1.  A MODULATION OR INFLECTION OF THE VOICE.  2.  THE PITCH USED IN VOICEOVERS.  DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION OF CADENCE-ONE WAY OTHERS RELATE FROM OUR VOICE AND THE TONE WITH INFLECTION CONVEYING OUR MEANING WITH EACH WORD READ OR HEARD.  CADENCE MAY SEEM INSIGNIFICANT, BUT IT IS ANYTHING BUT!  WE ALL NEED TO PRACTICE CADENCE WITH ANYTHING RELATED IN READING TO OTHERS SOMETHING WE WISH THEM TO BE INTERESTED IN.  MUSIC AND SONGS ARE IDEAL TO GIVE EXAMPLES WHY CADENCE IS SO VERY IMPORTANT.  IF A SINGER IS SINGING A SAD LOVE SONG, CADENCE IS ONE WAY THEY CONVEY THE MEANING OF THE WORDS SUNG AND THE SONG ITSELF.  HAVE YOU EVER HEARD A SAD SONG, AND WITH THE RIGHT INFLECTION OR CADENCE OF EACH WORD BEEN SO MOVED EMOTIONALLY IT MADE YOU CRY?  I AM SURE MOST OF US SAW THE INAUGURATION THIS YEAR.  THE FAMOUS POET WAS SO YOUNG AND HER NAME WAS AMANDA GORMAN.  SHE READ WITH SUCH A PASSION AND EXPRESSIVE  VOICE.  SHE WAS NOT OFF  A BEAT.  IT AMAZED ME WHAT A CLASS ACT IT ADDED TO THE INAUGURATION I WOULD OF HAD A POETRY READER AT THE LAST TEN PARTIES.   IT WOULD APPEAR THAT A POETRY READER WITH GREAT CADENCE WOULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT ASSET.  LOOKING BACK, GREAT POETRY READERS HAVE THE SAME QUALITIES AND ATTIBRUTesk AS GREAT STORY READERS WHICH WOULD INCLUDE CADENCE IN READING THEIR WORDS IN THEIR PROPER METER.  I  CAN’T  HELP  BUT GO ACK EVEN FURTHER IN TIME AND REMEMBER.” “NURSERY RHYMES,”  I REMEMBER THEM ALONG WITH SHORT STORIES READ ALOUD AND HOW WELL OR TERRIBLE IT SOUNDED DEPENDING ON HOW A PERSON READ THEM KEEPING UP WITH THE PROPER EXPRESSION AND ARTICULATION HELPING THE STORY SOUND GOOD OR IF THESE THINGS WERE OFF.   METER AND RYTHM BEING OFF OBVIOUSLY are NOT GOING TO MAKE SOMEONE OR SOMETHING SOUND BETTER.  THANKS SO MUCH, SAMANTHA LEBOEUF/DWW  PROPORTIONATE AND BALANCED IN BOTH WAYS.  THANKS SO MUCH,  SAMANTHA
