Abstract
Linguistic laws have been routinely investigated in written corpora or in oral corpora but transcribed to their written "equivalent". Due to that fact, inferences of statistical patterns found in language may be biased by the arbitrary choice of segmentation of the acoustic signal, therefore making difficult the comparative studies between the human voice and other animal communication systems. In a previous work we explore a method to directly study patterns in the energy releases of speech. ...
