I want to create some syllable like /ba/, /pa/, /ta/, /da/, with either Praat or Klatt synthesis interface. But I was overwhelmed by the information I found on the Internet. I was wondering what I should know if I just want to make these syllables.

  • Does this solve the problem? fon.hum.uva.nl/praat/manual/…. – user6726 Jul 26 '17 at 4:42
  • Thanks! It helps. I'm looking at the Speech Synthesis part of the Praat help. – chaoh Jul 26 '17 at 6:28
  • I followed the instructions but still can't get a /ba/-/da/ continuum, but a bunch of buzzing sounds. I'm trying other tutorials. – chaoh Jul 26 '17 at 9:07
  • The sound will be buzzy; but change "Filter (no scale)" to plain "Filter", and that will eliminate the massive peak clipping in the "bada" files. It still doesn't sound like "ba", but now you can start playing around with formant values. – user6726 Jul 26 '17 at 16:32
