Stops are subset of consonant sounds and exist in all languages as the case of Arabic language. Voice Onset Time (VOT) is a very important feature of stop sounds in many languages. VOT can be utilized by human auditory system to distinguish between voiced and unvoiced stops such as /p/ and /b/ in English. Similarly, VOT can be adopted by digital systems to(More)

Emphatic phonemes are an important and unique subset of Arabic phonemes. These phonems are difficult to pronounce especially for non-native Arabic speakers and for many normally-educated Arabs. In Arabic, all emphatic phonemes have their own non-emphatic counterparts. In this work, acoustic analysis for the four pairs of emphatic/non-emphatic pairs in(More)
Analyses of any language's phoneme set is very important in order to identify the features of digital speech and language for automatic recognition, synthesis, processing, and communication. Voice onset time (VOT) is one of the important features of stop subsets. VOT values can be applied only to stop phoneme subsets. In this paper we focused on only two(More)
In the speech signals of many languages, including Arabic, Voice Onset Time (VOT) is a key feature of stop phonemes. VOT can be utilized by a person's auditory system to distinguish between voiced and unvoiced stops such as /p/ and /b/ in the case of English. Similarly, VOT can be adopted by digital systems to classify and recognize stop phonemes in order(More)
The signal sound contains many different features, including Voice Onset Time (VOT), which is a very important feature of stop sounds in many languages. The only application of VOT values is stopping phoneme subsets. This subset of consonant sounds is stop phonemes exist in the Arabic language, and in fact, all languages. Very important subsets of Semitic(More)
Voice Onset Time (VOT) is an important feature in signal sound. This feature appears only in stop sounds. VOT can be utilized by human auditory system to distinguish between voiced and unvoiced stops such as /p/ and /b/ in case of English. Similarly, VOT can be adopted by digital systems to classify and recognize stop sounds and their carried syllables and(More)
