Sound Analysis and Synthesis on the Basis of Sound Microunits

The article chiefly deals with the characteristics of isolated sounds and with the significance of the microfunction which carries the primary information. These microunits are not standard sound forms but the elementary articulation minima, the duration of which only lasts some milliseconds. The article also includes the experiments which give enough evidence to show that only one microfunction is needed to restore a vowel or semi-vowel. The microfunction could come into existence in the time place which is defined by a certain number of amplitude patterns. By multiplying this microfunction utilising some automaton, the voice has been created which is characterised by the microfunction; the length of duration depends on the number of repetitions of the microfunction.

This outline is accompanied by formal registration of the voices and by a graphic interpretation.

Additonally the first attempts have been made in transposing the sounds by the help of various transforming microfunctions.
