Log-power spectra were calculated in the centre of continuant sounds for speaker identification. Results indicate that there is a difference in speaker identification power among these sounds. Under the conditions of the experimental and computational set-up described in this paper, vowels and nasals seem to contain more information on speaker identity than fricatives.
