Voix et transidentité : changer de voix pour changer de genre ?

Abstract : The aim of the present study is to show how transgender speakers use fundamental frequency and resonance frequencies to index their gender identities. The roles of these two parameters in the perception and recognition of speakers as "woman" or "man" could be investigated by linking the results of acoustic analyses and perceptual experiences. Ethnographic interviews conducted with the speakers allowed a better understanding of the obtained results; e.g. that misidentification of a speaker's gender can be caused by a conflict between the gender identity s/he tries to index through her/his voice and the attitudes, stances and other identities her/his voice indexes at the same time.
