Summary Details


Query:   Creaky voice/formant frequencies
Author:  Silvia Moosmueller
Submitter Email:  click here to access email
Linguistic LingField(s):   Phonetics

Summary:   SOME TIME AGO I ASKED A COLLEAGUE TO ASK WHETHER ANYBODY KNOWS
LITERATURE ON THE INFLUENCE OF CREAKY VOICE ON FORMANT FREQUENCIES. I
AM WORKING ON SPEAKER RECOGNITION AND THE REASON, WHY I AM INTERESTED
IN THIS QUESTION IS THAT ESPECIALLY FEMALES, WHEN THEY TRY TO DISGUISE
THEIR VOICE, USE CREAK. DURING TTHE PRODUCTION OF CREAK IT MIGHT BE THE
CASE THAT THE LARYNX IS LOWERED (I PERSONALLY DO THIS), SO THIS WOULD
CREATE AN EFFECT ON FORMANT FREQUENCIES.
