Abstract

This paper presents a study on Malay vowel formants of different age group between young adults and aged people. About 12 of the available young adult speech (6 males and 6 females; mean age 23 years) and 4 of the recorded aged people speech (2 males and 2 females; mean 67.3 years) were examined for analysis of formants to study the effect of age and gender. This work is significant in studying the hypothesis that the formant of aged people is lower than young adult population. The findings obtained shows that the formant of aged group is not critically affected by their age and male groups produces lower formant frequencies compared to the female groups either young adult or aged people. Formant frequency values also subject to variation due to the influence of surrounding phonemes.
