Recent research has demonstrated the usefulness of subglottal resonances (SGRs) in speaker normalization. However, existing algorithms for estimating SGRs from speech signals have limited applicability—they are effective with isolated vowels only. This paper proposes a novel algorithm for estimating the first three SGRs (Sg1; Sg2 and Sg3) from continuous adults’ speech. While Sg1 and Sg2 are estimated based on the phonological distinction they provide between vowel categories, Sg3 is estimated… CONTINUE READING
