The prosody of a language is encoded in syllable length, loudness and pitch. These attributes make humans perceive rhythm, stress and intonation in speech. Depending on the language, these speech properties vary, making language classification possible. On the other hand, formants are the resonance frequencies of the vocal tract, depend heavily on the position adopted by the articulatory organs, and are especially useful to disambiguate vowel sounds. In this paper prosodic and formant… CONTINUE READING
