Unformatted text preview: Formants Peaks in the spectrum, energy maxima: formants Formants result from selective enhancement of particular frequencies, depending on the resonance characteristics of the human vocal apparatus. The distinction between the voice source (periodic, stochastic, transient, mixed excitation) and sound shaping in the vocal tract leads to the source and filter model of speech production.
