Thanks to everyone who responded to my question about voiceprints as speaker
identification (LINGUIST List 10.1459).

The following responses produced many helpful leads:

You might want to check out pages 211-214 of Ladefoged's _A Course in
Phonetics_, Third Edition (Harcourt Brace, 1993).

If you're interested in this area, there are a few classic articles
you should take a look at (below). I'm sure there is considerable
more recent stuff that i don't know about, but the general issues
raised in these articles still hold.

Good luck,

If what you mean is to use voice to identify a person, as in finger
print, then you can search the web for "speaker identification". It
is a thriving field in speech technologies having a lot of shared
methodologies with ASR, Automatic Speech Recognition. Speech
conference such as ICSLP, Eurospeech, ICASSP, each have sections on
this topic.

teaching website devoted to discerning linguistic information out of
sonagrams. Check out the website listed in my sig if you are
