Vowel /[??]/ is a very specific Turkish sound; it was not evaluated before except one research with no significant difference before and after surgically assisted RME (10).
My goal here is to point to and share a few thoughts about a long expressed (but in my experience commonly overlooked) notion about six German vowels that can facilitate individualized practical solutions to a rather common problem that is particular to singing in German.
Since in singing, the duration of vowels is determined not by the spoken language, but by the composition, the singer cannot always fulfill the demands of German standard pronunciation [i.e., Hochdeutsch] in terms of length and brevity.
Urdu script which is, in fact, an augmented version of Arabo-Persian script does not by default indicate short vowels, as is the case with its primogenitors.

In sum, in discussing the acquisition of the vowel system in PB from the CHT perspective, Bohn can deal with the variability found among learners, which is not possible within other theoretical frameworks.

The present paper aims at contributing to a better understanding of the relationship between vowel quality and intelligibility in ELF.
F0 values were measured at each vowel's onset and 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 msec after this onset in order to determine if IF0 was more prominent at certain points than others.
The only robust effect was the realization of a short vowel in a syllable following the first short syllable as phonetically half-long: [kana] 'hen:NOM' (the [V.sub.2]/[V.sub.1] ratio in disyllables was 1.6 in Lehtonen's experiment, see Table 1).
