In this paper, a method is proposed to evaluate contributions of auditory feedback to speech F0 trajectory generation. This method is based on data obtained in a series of new auditory feedback experiments (TAF: transformed auditory feedback) in which quantitative measurements were taken of interactions between speech perception and production under natural speech conditions. Experimental results revealed that the effects on power spectra of F0 trajectories vary among subjects and that the maximum magnitude exceeds 10 dB.
