Some years ago I met someone who had been smoothing the staccato out from their voice. I noticed how some people yank their emphasis around, while others map layers of lilting meaning; almost musical but without singing. Also I noticed how speaking a different language presented the opportunity to shake out some vocal habits.

That is a good advice. Lilting, a voice that raises and falls, is often perceived more feminine than a steady one that doesn't change pitch that much. Another slightly related term is uptalk, where pitch raises slightly towards the end of sentence, making a statement sound more like a question. Uptalk is often perceived feminine, although it's not exclusively feminine trait.

You're welcome dnt. I'm glad you found this episode interesting. That youtube channel goes much deeper in the details and there's a cool video where she's playing back voice samples from the past.
