The Phonetics of Tone and Voice Quality Interactions in Sylheti

This paper examines the phonetic interactions of tone and voice qualities in Sylheti. Data from six native speakers are examined to understand the voice qualities of the vowels carrying contrastive

Acoustic and Electroglottographic Study of Breathy and Modal Vowels as Produced by Heritage and Native Gujarati Speakers

TLDR
The results of the Smoothing Spline ANOVA analyses indicated that measures such as H1-A1, harmonic to noise ratio, and contact quotient distinguished modal and breathy vowels for native speakers.

The phonetic properties of the non-modal phonation in Shanghainese

This study investigates the acoustic and articulatory properties of phonation contrast in Shanghainese, the most thoroughly studied Chinese Wu dialect. Although previous studies generally suggest

Phonetics of White Hmong vowel and tonal contrasts

Hmong languages, particularly White Hmong, are well studied for their complex tone systems that incorporate pitch, phonation, and duration differences. Still, prior work has made use mostly of tones

Breathiness Contrasts in Consonants and Vowels: A Comparative Study of Gujarati and White Hmong

TLDR
The current study investigates acoustic and articulatory properties of consonantal and vocalic breathiness in ambiguous contexts, discovering that speakers of both languages consistently differentiate the two underlying sequences in the relative timing/ duration and magnitude of the phonetic realization of breathiness.

A CROSS-LANGUAGE ACOUSTIC SPACE FOR VOCALIC PHONATION DISTINCTIONS

Many languages use multiple phonation types for phonemic or allophonic distinctions. This study examines the acoustic structure of the phonetic space for vowel phonations across languages, focusing

Perception of Breathy Phonation in Gujarati

The correlates of breathiness are similar across consonants and vowels, raising a question about whether breathy consonant/breathy vowel contrasts are confusable in languages with both, e.g.

A CROSS-LANGUAGE ACOUSTIC SPACE FOR PHONATION DISTINCTIONS

Many languages use multiple phonation types for phonemic contrasts. This study examines the acoustic structure of the phonetic space for vowel phonations across languages. Our sample of 11 languages,

Glottal articulations of phonation contrasts and their acoustic and perceptual consequences 1

This study explores the properties of one type of phonation contrast - the tense vs. lax phonation contrasts of Yi (Loloish) languages – in terms of their glottal articulations, acoustic correlates,

WPP, No.111: Glottal articulations of phonation contrasts and their acoustic and perceptual consequences

This study explores the properties of one type of phonation contrast - the tense vs. lax phonation contrasts of Yi (Loloish) languages – in terms of their glottal articulations, acoustic correlates,

San Felipe Jalapa de Díaz (Jalapa) Mazatec is unusual in possessing a three-way phonation contrast and three-way level tone contrast independent of phonation. This study investigates the acoustics of

Phonation Contrasts across Languages

TLDR
This study compared the contrastive phonation types of four languages—Gujarati, Hmong, and Yi—on several acoustic measures, within and across languages, finding H1*-H2* is seen to be the most important measure of phonation contrasts across languages.

TLDR
Several acoustic measures show that nonmodal and modal vowels are differentiated more strongly and over a longer duration in Mazatec than in Tagalog.

TLDR
Stochastic prominence of the fundamental relative to the second harmonic is a very significant correlate of the breathy/normal distinction, as is the relative closed-phase duration.
