Vocal tract formants are spectral peaks in the frequency spectrum of the human voice that are determined by the resonant frequencies of the vocal tract.[1] Formants are important for speech because they provide information about the size and shape of the vocal tract, which can help distinguish between different speech sounds and convey meaning in spoken language [2].
