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.
- Vocal Dose Measures: Quantifying Accumulated Vibration Exposure in Vocal Fold Tissues. Titze, Ingo R.; Svec, Jan G.; Popolo, Peter S. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Aug2003, Vol. 46 Issue 4, p919
To measure the exposure to self-induced tissue vibration in speech, three vocal doses were defined and described: distance dose, which accumulates the distance that tissue particles of the vocal folds travel in an oscillatory trajectory; energy dissipation dose, which accumulates the total...

- 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...
- 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...
