    Welcome to the board, Atharbwp.

    Have you looked up these words in a dictionary?

    Why just human?

    Look up 'frequency' and 'amplitude'.

    Listen to James Ear Jones. Listen to Kristin Chenoweth.

    Imagine Mr. Jones speaking quietly. Imagine him speaking loudly.
    Now do the same to Ms. Chenoweth.

    They are completely independent.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
