Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) The present study evaluated the "popping-out" voice quality through auditory tests using a semantic differential method. Participants selected speakers who have popping-out voice from 280 speakers (140 male and 140 female) of ATR speech database set C, and then evaluated speech sounds of speakers who have and do not have popping-out voice by thirteen bipolar adjective pairs. Results of a factor analysis suggested that the popping-out voice quality has metallic and powerful qualities.
