Do not attack a note at the same time that you are inhaling. That is too soon. Take the breath through the nose, of course, and give it an instant to settle before attacking the sound. In this way you will avoid the stroke of the glottis which is caused by the sudden and uncontrolled emission of the accumulated breath.
[Luisa Tetrazzini, The Art of Singing (New York: Metropolitan, 1909) 26.]

I believe that Tetrazzini was incorrectly using the term “stroke of the glottis” to describe an explosive attack.
私は、テトラッツィーニが破裂的なアタックを記述するために「声門の打撃」という用語を誤って使っていたと思う。[Marek, 84]
