from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. In voice-building, the act or process of adjusting the breath and the resonance-cavities of the pharynx and mouth so that vocal tones are apparently located, that is, resonated, in certain points in the mouth. In general it is most satisfactory when the center of resonance is high and forward.

Special "voice-placing" exercises are not used to any such extent as in the strictly scientific methods just described, the voice-placing work being usually done on vocalises, songs, and arias.
Moreover, the training in tone-production is carried on during the singing of the compositions just described, as well as by practice on "voice-placing" exercises strictly speaking.
But in actual practice this distinction between "voice-placing" exercises and technical studies is seldom drawn.
