ISCA Tutorial and Research Workshop on Experimental Linguistics (ExLing 2008)
F2 transition parameters including F2 onset and offset frequency and locus equations have been studied for Persian affricates /dZ, tS/ and homorganic dental plosives /d, t/ and post alveolar fricatives /Z, S/. The F2 offset frequencies hierarchy is follow: post alveolar fricatives> affricates> dental plosives. This parameter makes a significant difference among mentioned consonants; however it does not show voiced- unvoiced contrast. F2 onset does not provide regular results and locus equations coefficients do not show a significant difference between affricates and homorganic consonants. [Phonetic symbols are in SAMPA notation.]
