title = "Acoustic analysis of Chinese fricatives and affricates",
abstract = "A method of analyzing & describing the acoustic properties of fricatives is developed & applied to the fricatives & to the fricative components of the affricates of Standard Chinese. The method consists of making f spectra using the Fast Fourier Transform & analyzing the spectra in terms of critical bands. Three measures are proposed for characterizing the fricative spectra: the center of gravity, the dispersion, & the mean intensity level. The six fricatives of Chinese, & the fricative components of the six affricates are analyzed by this method, & compared with other langs. There is also some discussion of the significance of the results for the perception of Standard Chinese fricatives, & the relation of the method to distinctive feature theory.",
