Create formant table (Pols & Van Nierop 1973)

A command to create a Table object filled with the frequencies and the levels of the first three formants from the 12 Dutch monophthong vowels as spoken in /h_t/ context by 50 male and 25 female speakers.

Table layout

The created table will contain 10 columns

Column 1, labeled as Sex
speaker sex: Either "m" or "f" (for male or female).
Column 2, labeled as Speaker
speaker id: a number from 1 to 75.
Column 3, labeled as Vowel
the vowel name. The following list gives the vowel in p_t context word together with its representation in this column: (poet, oe), (paat, aa), (poot, oo), (pat, a), (peut, eu), (piet, ie), (puut, uu), (peet, ee), (put, u), (pet, e), (pot, o), (pit, i).
Column 4, labeled as IPA
the IPA-notation for the vowels
Column 5, 6 and 7, labeled as F1, F2 and F3
the frequencies in Hertz of the first three formants.
Column 8, 9 and 10, labeled as L1, L2 and L3
the levels in decibel below overall SPL of the first three formants.

More details about these data and how they were measured can be found in Pols et al. (1973) and Van Nierop et al. (1973).
