New Word of the Day: Upper Case Voice

Noun. To raise your voice or accentuate part of a sentence to stress significance as you would while typing in the digital world.

"I got a SUPERIOR HONOR award for that!" she said in her upper case voice.

 Adapted from the Urban Dictionary

Reminds me of Thackeray's Vanity Fair.

"For whom is this, Miss Jemima?" said Miss Pinkerton, with awful coldness.
"For Becky Sharp," answered Jemima, trembling very much, and blushing over her withered face and neck, as she turned her back on her sister. "For Becky Sharp: she's going too."
"MISS JEMIMA!" exclaimed Miss Pinkerton in the largest capitals; "are you in your senses? Replace the Dixonary in the closet, and never venture to take such a liberty in future."
