This study explored the effective articulatory and acoustic parameters for distinguishing Taiwan Min falling unchecked tones 53 and 31 and checked tones 5 and 3. Data were collected from Zhangzhou, Quanzhou, and mixed accents in northern, central, and southern Taiwan. Results showed that EGG parameters, Contact Quotients (CQ) and Peak Increase in Contact(More)
This study explored the voice quality of Taiwan Min checked tones 5 and 3 produced by speakers of varying ages from northern, central and southern Taiwan with Zhanzhou, Quanzhou and mixed accents. Comparison between spectral tilt (difference between H1*-H2* amplitudes) and closed quotients of the glottal wave form showed that checked tones with creaky /(More)
