Subject: Can girls 'glug'?
From: Melissa
Date: 11 Jul 09 - 03:55 PM

It's fairly obvious that women and men have some body parts that aren't the same. Maybe it's a dumb question, but is there a difference in our throats?

I've been told that the sound heard in Spike Jones recordings (possibly done by Doodles Weaver?) that sounds like a fast series of 'guhguhguh' is called Glugging.
Women can yodel and eef/eeph and there's a chance that the reason I've never heard a woman glug is because it's far from ladylike, but I try and just don't have much luck.

Are we physically able?

I always thought 'glugging' was swallowing a large volume of liquid quickly. Women can certainly do that - the star of our college drinking team was a young girl from a convent school who discovered she could sink 2 pints of beer quicker than any of the men.

She didn't make much of a noise doing it - maybe that was the convent training?

"Convent school" doesn't really mean that the pupils have any connection with the convent, HOWEVER - One of the best night's out I ever had was with a girl from a convent school for whom the event was a last fling before joining the convent as a novice.

Within an hour she had demonstrated her ability to drink more than the rest of us put together, then, just to make sure we'd noticed, she did it again.

My lasting memory of her is of her declarations of love for me as I held her over a basin before I too passed out from the experience. (sorry if that's too much information.) I don't recall whether or not she made noises as she glugged the pints.

No nearer an answer thenm! Glugging and drinking quickly are totally different. Really quick drinkers ( I was a bet handler for one)just open their throat, and pour it down. Gluggers, move the throat around the adam's apple up and down. Women have a smaller, less developed Adam's Apple. This much I know. Whether women can actually glug is an empirical question, that only you girls can answer.

Never heard anyone 'glugging,' but way back, miners drank by poaring from the bottle into their mouth, and swallowing with the mouth open. If anyone thinks that sounds easy, just try it. A learned skill.

The standard miner's tin bottle had a neck that was stopped with a cork, hence reluctance to touch it with your lips.

Bill D: If you knew a woman who wanted to try, how would you describe the way to do it?

Not sure about glugging, Melissa, but I've seen footage of Joan Sutherland, and it's amazing what she could do with her voice.

Also, on my walkabouts, I noticed several cultures (especially in Asia) still drink without touching the sides, as Gurney describes - whatever the liquid is contained in.

Hang on - Spike Jones and the City Slickers - Clang clang who gives a dang what's the difference when you're on a spree tum tum ti tum ti tum yell out stomach here it comes and have another drink on me.

There is a rather glottal sound on that which sounds like a bottle emptying - and yes women can make it. It is not done with the larynx but the back of the tongue and the soft pallette. Basically press together and pull apart with the mouth held open.

It might not be universal, I can also do tongue clicks and pronounce the Welsh ll correctly. Though the realisation that someone with a Yorkshire accent is trying to speak Welsh brings tears to the eyes of native speakers.

"Bill D: If you knew a woman who wanted to try, how would you describe the way to do it?"

well.... you sorta 'close your throat' by trying to force the back of your tongue against the roof of your mouth...or at least 'high',,,then it feels like suddenly 'popping' that muscle down. It is also a bit like gargling without liquid....the main area of the tongue barely moves. It is also a bit like...ummm... having something like a bite of bread that's too large that gets stuck back there and trying to force it back out just before swallowing it.

gee...that's not easy to explain.

I forgot about the bottle-pouring sound! That one is roughly the same (mechanically) as the "I can't get my car to start" 'gickaguy' sound..I think?

I think glugging is deeper in the throat..possibly in the same general area as the purr/growl sound you can make with an exhale. Glugging (IS that the right name for what I'm talking about?) doesn't sound wet.

Can you make a rapid hard-G sound deeper in your throat, AnneC?
..or even a slow series?

BillD: So, it's related to the fake loud-swallow noise? Sort of a cousin to the (apologies beforehand..definitely unladylike!) puking dog noise?   
Is it sort of like the loud-swallow noise..with an open mouth?
Is it sort of a combined loud-swallow and cough (to push the glug back out) or is the whole sound made by the swallow part?

I can make one in a row (I think) Is each syllable in a glug the same downward movement..or does up and down each make a syllable?

(good news..I don't want to jiggle my eyeballs or wiggle my ears..yet. It will be quite a while before I come back asking for description/instruction on that one!)

The sound heard on the Spike Jones recordings has nothing to do with the Adam's apple, male or female.

Bill D sorta-kinda has the right idea in his explanation. Actually, you do indeed "close" the back of your mouth, at the uvula/tonsil area, by raising the back of your tongue against that soft tissue (not against the "roof" of the mouth". At the same time you close the passageway from sinus to throat with your muscle, which created suction behind the tongue. Then you use that suction to 'pop' the back of the TONGUE down, while at the same time vocalizing so that you make a "geauuh" sound.

It's not a "glug". There's no "L" and no second "G" in the sound. The tongue-against-palate popping approximates a hard-"G" sound, and from there it's an "eah" sound (rhymes with "yeah" or with a Bostonian's pronunciation of "chair", "dare", etc.)

I have been making the sound as I have typed this, and I am a woman, so the creation of the sound is definitely gender-nonspecific.

You mean the almost retchingly far back in the throat G which is just the very edge of the soft pallette touching the very very back of the tongue?

Combined with a bit of nose noise it can make a sound like 'gung' with similarities to the striking of a long case clock. Very handy for story telling sound effects in Cinderella.

Excellent!

I should push the G into my throat..and the vowel sound comes when I pop it back out?
So..if someone could see a tongue during the process, it would be sort of undulating with the action being at the back..and with every G, the tongue would contract--then flatten a little for the vowel?

Open mouth all the time, right?

I think it's a little bit different from 'gung' it seems to sound like it's a little bit deeper in the throat.

The glugging sound I'm talking about is one that can be done rapidly. As fast as saying 'giggedy giggedy giggedy' in one second.

Melissa: Yes, push the "G" back from the normal position (where the tongue connects with the back of the roof of the mouth) toward the throat (where the tongue connects with the tonsil area).

Yes, open mouth throughout the process. Someone watching your tongue would see what you describe.

The rapid ten-times-a-second sound may in fact be gargling rather than "geauuh"-ing. (...or it could be that the "geauuh" sound was recorded and speeded up for a Spike Jones studio piece.) On which Spike Jones song does the ten-times-a-second thing occur?


Richard: Yes, you should be breathing out because you are vocalizing as you are "popping" the tongue away from the palate.

The best 'glugs' on Spike Jones records (Hawaiian War Chant, Sheik of Araby, etc.) came from Carl Grayson, although Mickey Katz's higher-pitch but faster glugs were also impressive.

The full vocal effect comes from, not only the throat effect, but flipping the upper lip with the tongue.

As to the original question, can girls do this? Check the 1930s records by the Boswell Sisters. Glugs in harmony!

flipping the lip gives it another syllable and makes it sound twice as fast?

In my experience, girls can not only glug, they can also, if pressed, tweet, glurg, burgh, blagh, clap and siffle.

But usually they do not resort to these extremes because they all have the powerful ability to wink, which gets them where they need to go. Also, they are much better than boys at nodding, hithering and crinkling.

I find the standard wiles a bit restrictive, Amos. Sure, they're all handy in the proper situations..but there's the question of appropriate usage and misconstruence.
That's where glugging comes in.
It's perfect in any situation.

I like to think of it as the vocal twin of brown shoes (which go with everything) Plus, it's surely a skill that would enhance any resume.
Who wouldn't hire a gal who might be willing to boldly glug where others dare not?

When a siffle just won't do, a glug can brighten the day (and distract innocent bystanders)

Glugging is, as I suspected, associated with beer. I'd bet the name came from the ummmm... 'distinctive'... sound of drinking beer rapidly.

The activity is 'chugging', the sound itself is a glug.

Spike Jones -- Hawaiian War Chant -- recording only

Spike Jones -- Cocktails for Two -- live performance
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyE9ORHxX_g&NR=1
(Glugging from 1>30 to 1:52)

In the "Cocktails" live-performance film, it is obvious that the multi-glug sound is NOT the result of flipping the upper lip with the tongue. The guy doing the glugging (wearing the derby, on the right side of the screen, to stage left of Spike Jones) appears to be moving his tongue inside his mouth -- flipping the tip of it against the roof of his mouth, perhaps? -- but he is not extending his tongue past his teeth to his lip.

Some excellent glugging can be heard on a 78 called "The Singing Frog", which is glugged by Bozo the Clown (several actors provided the voice over the years).

My daughter insisted on my singing this endlessly on long car trips, and I can glug, but excessive glugging really hurts the throat.

If you have a gender excuse for declining to glug, use it!

In 'Sheik of Araby' the glugs at the end are slower..seems like that ought to make them easier to hear and imitate and I'm looking forward to listening several times when I get a little bit of time to do it.

I listened to about half of a box set last night and was surprised at how infrequently glugging (has anyone found a better name for it, or is that really what it's called?) is used. Sheik and Cocktails are the only ones I've run across so far.

This thread is turning out to be a hoot!
