Vocal Fry

It's a manic Monday (jerks at the car dealership), but I had to share this little bit that I caught on CBS Sunday Morning yesterday about the "vocal fry" (that particular twang popularized by the Kardashian sisters). About 95% of my female college students speak with this vocalization. It's about as ubiquitous as Pink yoga pants and Vera Bradley backpacks.

I wish I could find the video version (I've actually tweeted CBS Sunday Morning and asked them to put it up; we'll see if they will). By the by, if you don't watch this show, you really should. It's, well, delightful.
