This paper investigates acoustic features correlated with voicing (VOT, stop duration, closure duration, release duration, voicing into closure duration, duration of preceding vowel and duration of following vowel) and with the place of articulation (spectral peaks) of stop consonants /p, b, t, d, k, g/. A corpus with these stops in initial, medial and final word position was recorded for six native speakers of European Portuguese.
