An acoustic study of an uncommon vowel produced by Hungarian-english bilinguals
Keywords:Sound recording, Speech analysis, Speech communication, Speech processing, Acoustic analysis, Sound system
AbstractThe acoustic analysis aimed at quantifying the two parameters-tongue height and tongue backing-results in acknowledging two separate tendencies in relation to the degree of the speakers' involvement with the Hungarian community. These tendencies are clearly identifiable for female and male speakers alike. The first tendency is observed in connection with those subjects who had minimal or no contact with the Hungarian community. On the other hand, the second tendency is related to speakers with strong involvement with the Hungarian community who appear to produce this vowel with higher tongue position than do the control speakers.
