Production des voyelles parlées et chantées dans le Cantu in Paghjella

Abstract : What are the acoustic and articulatory characteristics of spoken and sung vowels in the Cantu in Paghjella (Corsican polyphony for three voices), depending on the singer, the vowel and the fundamental frequency? The acoustic analysis of the first four formants in speech and singing, and the tongue and lips movements analysis usually show (i) a significant increase in F1, with decrease of tongue height but decrease of labial opening, in connection with a correlation between F0 and F1; (ii) a decrease of F2 for the front vowels, a lingual posteriorisation and a posteriorisation of the hyoid shadow only for the bassu; (iii) an increase of F3 and F4 mostly for the bassu; (iv) an increase of the Singing Power Ratio, mainly for the bassu and the secunda. Its values are however lower than those of opera singers and do not correspond to a clustering of F3 and F4.
