In this paper we show a speech production model of the vocal tract analogue, which can simulate the propagating mechanical vibrational wave on the tract wall, synthesize vocal sounds with the vibrational wave, and analyze the spectral properties for the synthesized waves. We propose a new lattice filter model for the effect of wall vibration in the larynx, and show that the sound propagation is influenced with the vibration in the result of simulation.
