a: Distorted vowel ~
b: dead canary in the mine

What: "This is not going to be an article on the singing of birds (although there is a huge literature on this topic). The thesis of this little article is that a distorted vowel is like a "dead canary in the mine" to the observant teacher. It is a warning that the voice is in a compromised condition. Addressing the vowel quality is therefore a critical step in the process of putting the voice right and should not be ignored."
