Speech production can be analysed in terms of universal articulatory-acoustic phonemic units shared between speakers. However, morphological differences between speakers and idiosyncratic articulatory strategies lead to large inter-speaker articulatory variability. Relationships between strategy and morphology have already been pinpointed in the literature. This study aims thus at generalising existing results on a larger database for the entire vocal tract (VT) and at quantifying phoneme… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • A procedure of normalisation of VT contours between speakers, based on the use of mean VT contours, led to an overall reduction of inter-speaker VT contours variance of 88%.
