Vocal Dose Measures: Quantifying Accumulated Vibration Exposure in Vocal Fold Tissues
- ON THE COMPLEX REGULATING THE VOICED-VOICELESS DISTINCTION II. Slis, I.H.; Cohen, A. // Language & Speech;Jul-Sep69, Vol. 12 Issue 3, p137
Discusses the time structure of various acoustic attributes. Contribution of attributes to the voiced-voiceless distinction; Observation of successive acoustical events; Interpretation of the nature of the mechanism underlying the voiced-voiceless distinction.
- Speaker-specific formant dynamics: An experiment on Australian English/aI/. McDougall, Kirsty // International Journal of Speech, Language & the Law;2004, Vol. 11 Issue 1, p103
Formant frequency dynamics are relevant to forensic speaker identification since they are determined by the shape and size of a speaker's vocal tract and the way he or she configures the articulators for speech. This study investigates individual differences in the formant dynamics of...
- A GRAPHIC METHOD OF SHOWING VOICE IMPROVEMENT. Ewisc, W.G. // Western Speech;Jan1939, Vol. 3 Issue 2, p13
Discusses tips on voice improvement for speech. Evaluation of speech work; Problems involved in a speech testing program.
- IN QUALIFIED DEFENSE OF VOT. Lisker, Leigh // Language & Speech;Oct-Dec78, Vol. 21 Issue 4, p375
Focuses on the importance of the voice onset time (VOT) in discussing the phonetic feature of stop voicing. Basis for separating homorganic stop categories across a variety of languages; Limitation of the VOT measure; Relation between burst and pulsing onset.
- The Importance of Speech Intelligibility. GRUSZKA, MARY // TV Technology;4/1/2013, Vol. 31 Issue 8, p29
The article focuses on speech intelligibility. In case of human speech, the vowels from the vocal chords produce more sound than the consonants. For speech to be intelligible, a listener should clearly distinguish the different consonant sounds. In most cases the problems faced by viewers...
- Comparison of Measures of Variability of Speech Movement Trajectories Using Synthetic Records. Lucero, Jorge C. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Apr2005, Vol. 48 Issue 2, p336
In speech research, it is often desirable to assess quantitatively the variability of a set of speech movement trajectories. This problem is studied here using synthetic trajectories, which consist of a common pattern and terms representing amplitude and phase variability. The results show that...
- Chapter NINE: Produce and project your voice - pause - and lift. // Janner's Complete Speechmaker;5/1/2003, p38
Chapter 9 of the book "Janner's Complete Speechmaker" is presented. It focuses the significance of producing and projecting the voice, pausing and lifting. Speaker must diverge and change the volume and tone of the speech, but always within the hearing range of the listeners. People in the back...
- AN EXPERIMENT CONCERNING THE RECOGNITION OF VOICES. Shearme, J. N.; Holmes, J. N. // Language & Speech;Jul-Sep59, Vol. 2 Issue 3, p123
Examines the factors involved in the recognition of voices among the people. Interests shown on the features exhibited by the speech spectral envelope; Characteristics observed in speech which contribute to voice recognition; Significance of voice quality in the recognition process.
- Speech Production in Two Occlusal Classes. Jesus, Luis M. T.; Costa, Isabel M.; Araújo, André // OnomÃ¡zein;Jun2014, Vol. 29, p129
Background: The influence of the occlusal class in speech production has been studied using the X-ray Microbeam Speech Production Database (XRMB-SPD). Objectives/aims: This study aimed to relate the occlusal classes I and II with speech production adaptations. Methods: The Modified A-Space...
