A phonetic pilot study of chirp, chatter, tweet and tweedle in three domestic cats

Schötz, Susanne LU (2013) Fonetik 2013 In [Host publication title missing] p.65-68
Abstract
This study collected 257 vocalisations from three domestic cats when they were watching birds through the window. The sounds were subdivided into the types chatter, chirp, tweet and tweedle, and analysed for duration and F0. Variation was found within and between these types as well as within and between the three cats in both duration and F0. A tentative taxonomy of prey-observing cat vocalisations is suggested based on words used for bird sounds.
