Abstract

Do two impersonators select the same features of one target speaker? The present study is a comparative survey of two professional impersonators imitating the same target speakers. It is obvious that the impersonator has to capture many different phonetic features of the target speaker and some individual features seem to be more important for a successful voice imitation and for the listener when recognizing the target voice.
