Abstract: Since glottal source plays an important role for expressing emotions in speech, it is crucial to compare a set of glottal source parameter values to find differences in these expressions of emotions for emotional speech recognition and synthesis. This paper focuses on comparing a set of glottal source parameter values among varieties of emotional vowels /a/ (joy, neutral, anger, and sadness) using an improved ARX-LF model algorithm. The set of glottal source parameters included in the comparison were T_p, T_e, T_a, E_e, and F_0(1/T_0) in the LF model; parameter values were divided into 5 levels according to that of neutral vowel. Results showed that each emotion has its own levels for each set of the glottal source parameter value. These findings could be used for emotional speech recognition and synthesis.
