We present a preliminary study of the acoustic properties of the Kagayanen vowel space. We find that /ə/ has an F1 value similar to /i/ and /u/ and hence should be classified as a high vowel. The vowel /i/ has a reduced F2 value in closed syllables. For /u/, both F1 and F2 increase in word-final open syllables.

The reason why, other things being equal, the pitch of vowels correlates with vowel “height,” has long been a subject of speculation. The effect is usually attributed either to acoustic coupling
