Abstract : This paper presents a simulation framework that enables a glottal chink model to be integrated into a time-domain continuous speech synthesizer along with self-oscillating vocal folds. The glottis is then made up of two main separated components: a self-oscillating part and a constantly open chink. This feature allows the simulation of voiced fricatives, thanks to a self-oscillating model of the vocal folds to generate the voiced source, and the glottal opening that is necessary to generate the frication noise. Numerical simulations show the accuracy of the model to simulate voiced fricative, and also phonetic assimilation, such as sonorization and devoicing. The simulation framework is also used to show that the phonatory/articulatory space for generating voiced fricatives is different according to the desired sound: for instance, the minimal glottal opening for generating frica-tion noise is shorter for /z/ than for /Z/.
