A new set of parameters is described for analysis and synthesis of glottal area, vocal fold contact area, and glottal volume flow. Parameters are all nondimensionalized and consist of an abduction quotient, a shape quotient, a phase quotient, and a load quotient in addition to fundamental frequency and vibrational amplitude. The parameters show promise in interpretation of electroglottographic, photoglottographic, and inverse filtered volume velocity waveforms in terms of the glottal configuration. Some comparisons between modeled and measured glottographic waveforms are made.
