It's a great word. Just doesn't apply to the written word. Only spoken. It used to be taught. Projection, planned pauses, enunciation, emphasis, tempo, pitch, timbre, etc. It's actually covered in one of my old school primers. The one used on the show "Little House on the Prairie." Perfect example of the devolution of American Education. This middle-school book from the 1880s, would leave most of today's college graduates confused.
