Intonation and melody

People who clutter sometimes speak in a rather monotone way. This often results in a long-winded and difficult to follow story. Some people who clutter have the habit of pronouncing each sentence using the same melody, like a record that keeps playing the same tune. This is also called melodic monotony. It helps to be aware of these sound characteristics in your speech and to focus on improving them, for example by varying the pitch. Or by putting more emphasis on words. It makes your speech more pleasant to listen to.
