Abstract Self-oscillating bar-mass models of the vocal folds are frequently used as the voice source in articulatory speech synthesis. For these models, a number of ways to handle the entrance loss and the flow separation in the glottis have been proposed. However, the effect of different modeling choices on vocal fold oscillation and glottal flow, and on the quality of synthesized speech has been rarely examined. In this study, a modified two-mass model of the vocal folds was used to simulate p...

Abstract This paper examines how acoustic characteristics of vowels and consonants reflect intonational differences between polar questions and statements in Polish whispered, semi-whispered and normal speech modes, with particular focus on the spectral characteristics of voiceless consonants as a function of intonation, and across speech modes. The results reveal significant differences in spectral properties of both utterance-final vowels and consonants across statements and polar questions. Q...

We present the results of an acoustic study showing that the Polish sibilant system is undergoing changes in the speech of young university-educated women. The results based on the acoustic analysis of 16 speakers’ pronunciation, reveal that the new variants of alveolo-palatals are characterised by spectral peaks at higher frequencies and higher centre of gravity values than their Standard Polish counterparts. In addition, spectral moments, spectral slopes and the formants of preceding vowels di...

Fricative voicing distinction was tested for European Portuguese.Stimuli were generated with articulatory synthesis.Voicing maintenance is main perceptual cue, but other acoustic cues strongly interact. This study examined the conditions under which European Portuguese (EP) intervocalic fricatives are perceived as voiced/voiceless with respect to varying voiced-to-devoiced fricative portions, durations, pharyngeal widths and glottal heights. Articulatory speech synthesis incorporating a sophisti...
