The Chong language uses a combination of different acoustic correlates to distinguish among its four contrastive registers (phonation types). Electroglottographic (EGG) and acoustic data were examined from original fieldwork on the Takhian Thong dialect. EGG data shows high open quotient (OQ) values for the breathy register, low OQ values for the tense register, intermediate OQ values for the modal register, and rapidly changing high to low OQ values for the breathy-tense register. Acoustic…

Revisiting the Register Contrast in Shanghai Chinese

Earlier studies claimed that the contrastive tonal registers in the Shanghai dialect of Chinese were distinguished by contrastive phonation types, with the lower register showing breathier phonation.

Correlation between Sylheti tone and phonation

The canonical theories of tonogenesis distinguish voiced obstruents as the pitch suppressor of the following vowels whereas their voiceless counterparts are predicted to raise it (Yip 2004, Hombert

TLDR
The language has been shifting toward tonality and may have reached it, suggesting a conservative bias.

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
Five professional operatic baritone singers' voice-source characteristics were analyzed by means of inverse filtering of the flow signal as captured by a flow mask, finding no systematic variation with subglottal pressure or the fractional excess pressure over threshold.

Laryngeal complexity in Otomanguean vowels

TLDR
Students of linguistic sound systems would do well to study in detail the phonetic base, as this chapter considers an example case where a voiceless aspirated stop consists of an oral occlusion, cued by silence, as well as an articulatorily independent laryngeal abduction, cuing by broadband noise.
