Speech is generated by the co-ordination of various anatomical articulations known collectively as the vocal organs. The waveforms thus produced are either voiced or unvoiced speech. All the vowel sounds are voiced and have the sound source, the glottis. An amplification caused by the vocal tract filter is called resonance, and in speech these resonance are known as formants. Since each vowel has a different vocal tract shape, it will have a different format pattern. This paper is an attempt to analyze the vowels in SHAI`YÂNG MIRI language using the formant analysis. Analysis of the eight cardinal vowel speech samples in SHAI`YÂNG MIRI language is performed using formants, spectrogram, 19-channel auditory filter bank and through normalization of vowels.
