Principle of resonance: Vibration resulting from a sinusoidal driving force is sinusoidal and of the same frequency. It is simply scaled in amplitude. Filter function: Gives the scaling in amplitude at each frequency. Resonant frequency: Frequency of sinusoidal driving force producing maximum vibration. Source filter theory: Holds that a vowel is the product of the glottal- pulse source spectrum (driving force) and vocal-tract filter function. Shape of the vocal-tract determines the vowel. Consonants: Mostly produced by constrictions in the vocal tract producing air turbulence.
