||Physical Properties of a Voice
What properties should a sound have in order to be considered as a
linguistic signal by the brain?
This would be a really intereesting assignment question.
Have you ever thought you heard what you thought was someone speaking and then realised it was a bird, or a car engine, or the sea, or the wind in the leaves, or nothing at all?
Once the brain is involved, the answer involves mostly psychology, not acoustics.
