The vowels /a, i, u/ spoken by American English talkers with
non-pathological voices are described by means of voice source
model parameters using the Liljencrants-Fant (LF) model. The
sampling frequency of the data is 8 kHz which matches approximately
telephone bandwidth. After inverse filtering, trends of
voice source characteristics depending on the LF parameters are
analyzed and compared to literature and listening results.
