Studies in the Phonology of Asian Languages; IV, Vietnamese Vowels.
Han, Mieko S.
This study applies the spectrographic techniques to the analysis of the 11 vowels in the Hanoi dialect of Vietnamese. The analysis involves 5,500 spectrograms made of 869 common words containing these vowels, which are identified and described in terms of their Formant 1 and Formant 2 frequencies. Chapter 1 discusses the dialectal features of the Hanoi and other major dialects of Vietnamese. Following chapters deal with materials and techniques of spectographic analysis, the formant measurements of the 11 Hanoi vowels, domains of vowel phonemes, tone influence and consonant effect on vowel quality, and the inherent duration of vowels. The first three volumes of this series deal with the Korean language. Forthcoming volumes will be based on Korean, Vietnamese, and other Asian languages. (AMM)
