In the description of voice quality it is important to consider both laryngeal and supralaryngeal settings. The most common types of phonation types (laryngeal settings) by Laver [13] are: • modal or Cited by: 1. Linguistic voice quality is a rich yet relati vely understudied area. Phonation contrasts are multidim ensional, and listeners with different language experience attend t o different dimensions.

The vowel in see differs in quality from the first vowel in father., irrespective of whether it also differs in pitch or loudness. Thus, Peter Ladefoged in his book has discussed the principal constraints on the evolution of the sounds of the world’s languages, which are ease of articulation, auditory distinctiveness, and gestural economy.

Chapter 4 ''Phonation and Voice Quality'' explains various aspects of the phonation and supralaryngeal aspects of voice quality. Chapter 5 ''Description of vowels'' introduces articulatory, acoustic and perceptual aspects of vowels.

All the cardinal vowels are described in the chapter and accompanying CD gives the audio version of the vowels. These are adjectives, but some of them can be altered into verbs (“braying” / “brayed”) or nouns (“rasping” / “his voice was a rasp.”) Some of these more often describe a voice quality.

Some of them more often describe how a character says something in particular—a tone rather than a voice.

Dr Laver's integrative approach is a major advance in general phonetic theory and his standardisation of descriptive terminology for the voice will be welcomed by students and specialists in speech science, phonetics and phonology.The distinctive tone of speech sounds produced by a particular person yields a particular voice.

Voice quality is at the centre of several speech processing issues. In speech recognition, voice differences, particularly extreme divergences from the norm, are responsible for known performance degradations.
