187 mellifluous

Usage In Text: “Grief and anger had been a kind of physical pathology masking her true looks. Mother was awed by her beauty. [Sarah] laughed and spoke in a mellifluous voice”(187). Despite the fact that her life has been so hectic with the wedding, Sarah still managed to remain calm. In a way Sarah does not allow the many pressures in her surrounding to affect her, physically, she is still able to run smoothly.

  Derived from the word melifer, which means “bearing honey,” the word Mellifluous refers to flowing smoothly. Mellifluous is also defined to be harmonic or sounding sweetly. These definitions all link to music, either instrumental or vocal or even commentators.

  The word mellifluous is usually associated with describing the voice of many singers. It is often wondered if the vocal cords of some singers are “built” differently than others. However, due to the latest scientific research that theory can be disregarded. The mellifluous sounds of a singers voice are achieved by keeping a well-lubricated and undamaged larynx and pharynx. One of the most famous commentators known for his "mellifluous voice" was Bob Sheppard of the New York Yankees. Sheppard passed away at the age of 99 last year July.
