15th International Congress of Phonetic Sciences (ICPhS-15)
The variations of unaspirated stops /p/, /t/, /k/ were investigated
in spontaneous speech with the aim of (1) describing the variations
and (2) interpreting the variation for acoustic data in terms of articulation
In this report, 56 sentences were selected through the read speech corpus. The variations of unaspirated stops were analyzed and perception experiment was done. The primary analysis was done for voiced unaspirated stops. With the analysis, the classes of acoustic variations were explored.
