A strange phenomenon, for certain. A student of mine was attempting to write a first person narrative from the perspective of a teenage girl speaking with vocal fry, and had some interesting experimentation with how that might sound. How do you show vocal fry in a text? How do you punctuate uptalk? A good exercise for exploring a language mannerism which is hopefully short-lived.

Thanks, Keith.
