One direct advantage of the PLP is that its order is significantly less than orders generally used in LPC. PLP has often been combined with the RASTA (RelAtive SpecTrAl) method of speech analysis. RASTA bandpasses spectral parameter signals to eliminate steady or slowly-varying components in the speech signal (including environmental effects and speaker characteristics) and rapid noise events. The bandpass range is typically 1-10 Hz, with a sharp zero at 0 Hz and a timeconstant of about 160 ms.
It is interesting to associate data/packet communication between computers with language/speech communication between humans. For spoken language processing, phonetics and phonology6 are the most relevant of all the sub-fields in linguistics. Phonetics6^ is the study of sounds and human voice.
