抄録

transsexual voice therapyにおいて,訓練ターゲットとする声の高さを検討するために,男性から女性へ性別の移行を希望する性同一性障害者(MtF: male to female transgender/transsexual)119名と生物学的女性32名の母音発声(/a//i/)と朗読音声に対して,話者の性別を判定させる聴取実験および基本集周波数(F0)の分析を行い,比較検討した.<br>その結果,70%以上女性に聴こえる発話の声の基本周波数(F0)は母音で平均270Hz,朗読で217Hzとなり,生物学的女性の平均値243Hz(母音),217Hz(朗読)に近いものとなった.しかしながら,生物学的女性と同じF0値の範囲にあっても,女性と判定されない声が7割近くあり,声の高さだけが女性の声に聴こえる要因ではないことが示唆された.

In order to estimate the target pitch range in transsexual voice therapy, spoken sentences and sustained vowels /a/ and /i/ were recorded from 119 male-to-female transsexuals (MtF) and 32 biological females (F), and fundamental frequency (F0) was analyzed. The MtF speakers were classified into two groups: one perceptually judged as female, and those judged as male, based on perceptual judgments made by 100 listening subjects. The average F0 of sentences recorded from the MtFs perceived as female was 217 Hz, and that of vowels was 270 Hz. These values were comparable with those recorded from the biological female speakers, which were 217 Hz for sentences and 243 Hz for vowels. More than 70% of the MtFs were judged as male even though their F0 was in the same range of that produced by the biological female speakers. This result shows that F0 is an important but not sufficient factor for judging a voice as female.
