  38. normal shimmer values
    below 0.5 dB
  39. if vocal fold mass is increased by a cyst or nodule, the Fo will _______ and vibration will be less ________ and jitter and shimmer levels will ________
    decrease; periodic; increase
  40. this refers to a particular part of the range of the range of pitches of voice or instrument
  41. midrange pitches are ______ registers and higher range are ______ registers and a mixture of the two are _____ registers
    chest; flasetto; head
  42. in terms of voice production, the range of Fo is usually divided into these three registers

    also called .......
    • very low Fo, creaky, popping sound
    • vocal or glottal fry or creaky voice

    aka ____
    high; loft register
  45. register most common in speech
  46. in modal register, the ratio of time the folds are closed compared to opening and  closing is ____.
