The aim of this paper is to examine the role of dynamic cues (i.e. formant slopes obtained from a linear regression analysis) in comparison with static one (i.e. vowel targets) in the classification of Jordanian and Moroccan vowels, using Discriminant Analysis. 10 speakers per dialect produced a list of vowels in C1VC2, C1VC2V, or C1VC2VC words, where C1 and C2 were either /b/, /d/, /d/(pharyngealized) or /k/, and V, each vowel. Results show the possibility of vowel separation between both dialects for a specific consonantal environment. Using dynamic cues improves the correct classification rates of about 5% for Moroccan Arabic and 13% for Jordanian Arabic.
