Measurements were obtained of several physiological mechanisms which are known to be important in the control of fundamental frequency (F0). The data were analysed by means of a multiple regression analysis in which F0 is the criterion and the physiological signals are the predictors. Separate analyses were carried out for statements and questions, and for falling and rising F0. The results reveal no considerable differences in the control of F0 for the various datasets.
