This case study reports on an acoustic investigation of the motor speech characteristics of a set of young adult male monozygotic (MZ) twins and compares them to those of an age- and sex-matched sibling who participated in the study 2 years later to match for demographic factors. Coarticulation patterns were investigated from read samples of consonant-vowel(More)
This study describes a speaker-identification task carried out using two sets of single monosyllables and two sets of hybrid monosyllables prepared from monosyllabic words spoken by a set of monozygotic twins. The task was carried out by 6 listeners who were all very familiar with the twins and by the twins themselves. The identification scores for the pure(More)
This case study describes an investigation into the speaking characteristics of a set of male monozygotic (MZ) twins (T1 and T2) and an age- and sex-matched sibling (S). Measures of speech tempo and fundamental frequency (F0) were analysed in the speech samples of a reading passage. Results showed significant between-sibling differences for sentence(More)
This study reports on an investigation into the coarticulation patterns of a set of young adult male monozygotic (identical) twins, based on a speech corpus of monosyllabic words. The monosyllabic words were of the structure CVC, and were chosen to represent a variety of consonantal and vowel contexts. Coarticulation patterns were investigated by deriving(More)
