So. I've started using this powerfull (though inconvenient) piece of software Praat. And when i try to measure my own vocals formants of single vowels and these of native speakers (spanish) we all hit near respective median values.
And when i start analyzing vowels in words, say lobo. Female voice gives respectively (553,1287) (494,807) for first and second o.
Male voice (541,1134) , (505,1080)
- (529,1235), (511,1120)
- (488,1292) , (500,1128)
- (514,1238) , (504,1165)
Mean values for spanish o (Quilis y Esgueva 1983): (474.5,888.4)
So, what's going on here and why the F2 shifts so much?
I mean this shift from f2 of a standalone vowel to f2 of the vowel in lobo of native speakers and mine.
