ABSTRACT
The article discusses the quantitative position of [a͘] and [e͘] <∗-añ-, ∗-eñ- and those ∗-à- , ∗-è- lengthened due to the stress in the subdialect of the Southwest Aukštaitian is analysed in experimental research of these vowels. The keystone is put on the fact that back long vowels [a͘] as well as [e͘] <∗-añ, ∗-eñ- and half long vowels [a.] and [e.] <∗-à- , ∗-è- of the West Aukštaitian subdialect differ in their quantity and other distinctive features. The main objectives of the article me to explore and describe the quantity and spectra of different-origin back short vowels of the subdialect of Prienai with the help of empirical observation, experimental research mid statistical methods. The article includes the object of research, description and methods of research material, main results mid conclusions. The experimental investigation of the quantity and quality of the low non-short vowels in the subdialect of Prienai has shown that vowels of different origins me characterised by different acoustic arnd articulatory features. The measurement of vowel duration has indicated that [a͘] and [e͘] < ∗-añ-, ∗ -eñ- are longer than the ones lengthened due to the stress to the ratio of 1.29:1. For this reason, they were considered as long and half-long vowels respectively. This has been proved by statistical investigation, too. Qualitative differences have also been revealed between low long and half-long vowels--in other words, vowels of different origins me characterised by different acoustic and articulatory features. The timbre of back low [a͘] is lower than that of [a.]. The variable articulation is typical of the front low vowels [e͘], esp. [æ͘] : at the beginning of the sound the timbre of [e͘] and [æ͘] is slightly higher than those of [e.] and [æ.], while at the end the slightly lower timbre is typical of [e͘] told [æ͘].
