Abstract. In the past few decades, a considerable amount of speech research has
been directed towards the development of a simple description of speech events and its automatic recognition. This research has stimulated interest among engineers and led to band-width compression of speech for communication purposes and
speech therapists. In the present
use of these acoustic
events in determining
vocal track configuration of human being is reported. The authors have developed an instrumentation system which is based upon the principle of
frequency counting. These counts of formant frequency of speech events are used 10 determine the
shape. This device is capable of determining the frequencies upto Fs level. Further with the help of this device normal and abnormal conditions of vocal track can be studied. It is suggested that the functioning of system may be useful to
phoneticians, linguists and communication engineers.
Keywords: Frequency; vocal track; speech.
