The Importance Of Tonality

It's important to understand that a command isn't just a matter of wording, but the tone of voice you use.

In the English language, we have basically three kinds of sentences:

1. Statements

2. Questions

3. Commands

A statement is uttered with an even tonality. "John walked across the room."

A question ends with an up turn in tonality. "Who walked across the room?"

A question ends with a down turn in tonality. "John ... walk across the room!" Make sure when you give your commands that you pause and then drop your tonality downward.
