A quick note on the acoustics of nasal consonants

Recently, we barely scratched the surface of characterizing fricative phonemes. Now, how to characterize nasal consonants acoustically? A good answer to this question would require plenty of explanations. I suggest you to check on pages 487-514 of Acoustic Phonetics by Professor Kenneth Stevens. But I’ll provide you with some hints, anyway. Nasal consonants are sonorant phonemes, but they exhibit […]

Hints at Speech Inverse Filtering of Fricative Phonemes

For my thesis, I developed my own inversion toolbox. But no matter the toolbox, you require a “source” of information for inversion. That information may be spectral energy distribution, formants, etc.
