Objective/Hypothesis. One of the objective assessments of voice is acoustic analysis, particularly, the parameters fundamental frequency (F-0), jitter, shimmer, and noise-to-harmonics ratio (NHR). Because the normative data for healthy native Turkish male and female speakers are lacking in the literature, this study aimed to obtain F0, perturbation parameters, and NHR in three sustained vowels (/A/, /i/, and /u/) among young Turkish speaking adults.
