Nonlinear predictive split vector quantization (NPSVQ) and classiied NPSVQ (CNPSVQ) are introduced to exploit the correlation among the speech spectral parameters from two adjacent analysis frames. By interleaving intraframe SVQ with forward predictive SVQ, error propagation is limited to at most one adjacent frame. At an overall bit rate of about 21(More)
