Meaning of Hoarseness
Dysphonia is the medical term for disorders of the voice: an impairment in the ability to produce voice sounds using the vocal organs (it is distinct from dysarthria which signifies dysfunction in the muscles needed to produce speech). Thus, dysphonia is a phonation disorder. The dysphonic voice can be hoarse or excessively breathy, harsh, or rough, but some kind of phonation is still possible (contrasted with the more severe aphonia where phonation is impossible). - See link


Hoarseness in Spanish is Disfonía
Disfonía es el nombre que recibe todo trastorno de la voz cuando se altera la calidad de ésta en cualquier grado exceptuando el total, en cuyo caso se denomina afonía. Las disfonías pueden ser de varios tipos según su etiología y manifestaciones clínicas. - See link
