This article presents an acoustic analysis of voiceless sibilants in Basque language. It is worth mentioning that, in some varieties of language, the three fricatives and affricates turn into and are often reduced to only one, and sometimes this distribution is linked to gender identity. In each variety it is essential to work out acoustic analyses, in order to specify which type of pronunciation it is in each case. On the one hand, this article analyzes the acoustic indicators that may be used to carry out the acoustic analysis, and on the other hand, in order to conduct this analysis, these indicators are used to analyze one variety, Beizama’s, which correctly differentiates the six sibilants existing in Basque.
