Nasality is not significant in English, but it is distinctive in French, Portuguese, Polish, etc. An often neglected fifth dimension or parameter is tone as found in Mandarin Chinese, though this is not usually shown on vowel charts.

Here the two words dit and dû are distinguished solely on whether there is lip rounding on the syllable’s vowel nucleus. REMINDER: NASALITY Nasality occurs when the velar valve – the mobile back of the palate – is open to allow the flow of air into the nasal cavity, where it resonates, introducing a nasal formant into the resulting sound. g. French contrasts beau /bo/Fr and bon /bõ/Fr). g. man [mãn]Eng or moon [mũn]Eng). ACOUSTIC ANALYSIS This refers to the acoustic analysis of the signal corresponding to the pronunciation of a planned sound.

Vowels Vowels are classified according to the position in the oral cavity, on a cross-sectional plane, of what was originally thought of as the highest part of the tongue. This was later modified to the most significant part of the tongue to contribute to its overall shape – and both were later shown to be much too simple because in reality the entire tongue surface participates in setting up the shape of the oral cavity, not just a single point. Thus a twodimensional graph or chart can be set up with rows representing a high– low dimension and columns representing a forward–backward dimension.
