Vocology is the science of enabling or endowing the human voice with greater ability or fitness.. Its concerns include the nature of speech and language pathology, the defects of the vocal tract (laryngology), the remediation of speech therapy and the voice training and voice pedagogy of song and speech for actors and public speakers.
The study of vocology is recognized academically in taught courses and institutes and this increased recognition was confirmed when the Scandinavian journal of logopedics & phoniatrics and Voice merged in 1996 the new name selected was Logopedics, Phoniatrics, Vocology.
Meaning and Origin of termEdit
Vocology was invented (simultaneously, but independently) by lngo R. Titze, and an otolaryngologist at Washington University, Prof. George Gates. Titze defines Vocology as "as the science and practice of voice habilitation, with a strong emphasis on habilitation. To habilitate means to “enable”, to “equip for”, to “capacitate”; in other words, to assist in performing whatever function that needs to be performed". He goes on that this "is more than repairing a voice or bringing it back to a former state ... rather, it is the process of strengthening and equipping the voice to meet very specific and special demands".
