Hoarse vs. nasal

He has a very strong 'hoarse' or 'nasal' voice. He must be sick.

Are they both correct? If so, which is more common? Thank you!

    The two words are not synonyms, jokaec. What are you trying to say in your sentence?
    Thank you, Florentia52.
    I just want to know if a person gets cold, normally his voice I'll change. Which one can be used to describe his voice, a hoarse voice or a nasal voice?

    Both of them can.

    If the throat is sore, then the voice is hoarse; if the nose is blocked, it is nasal.
