Acoustic-articulatory evaluation of the upper vowel-formant region and its presumed speaker-specific potency

Abstract

We present some evidence indicating that phonetic distinctiveness and speaker individuality, are indeed manifested in vowels' vocal-tract shapes estimated from the lower and the upper formant-frequencies, respectively. The methodology developed to demonstrate this dichotomy, rst implicates Schroeder's [8] acoustic-articulatory model which can be coerced to… (More)
