Abstract : The aim of the present research is to gather a large amount of language data in standard Korean, and to analyse this data with the aid of the spectrograph in order to ascertain all the significant speech signals which are used in the language. The spectrographic study of sound transi tions and suprasegmental features, such as juncture and intonation, are planned for the immediate future. The primary objective of the present study is to utilize the spectrographic data and subsequent analysis in a better description of the phonology of Korean. Although the scope of the present investigation is limited to the domain of linguistics, the resulting data will most certainly be useful for other research. Studies on speech synthesis and automatic speech recognition require accurate knowledge of the phonology of the language as a theoretical basis. The present study aims to develop a phonology which will provide such a basis for the advanced studies. (Author)
