habitual pitch

(redirected from modal frequency)

ha·bit·u·al pitch

(hă-bich'ū-ăl pich)
Central tendency of pitch, or fundamental frequency, most often used by a person in speaking. Voice strain or vocal pathology may result when the habitual pitch is significantly different from the optimal pitch.
See: optimal pitch
