If we talk about a spoken voice, then there may be a breakdown of the voice, hoarseness, cough, an unpleasant “tickle”. The singing voice is more informative in this case: voice breakdowns when taking extreme notes of a young man’s range, discomfort in the larynx during vocal lessons, “dirty” intonation, and loss of voice also occurs.
