Several properties, interrelations, and interpretations are developed for various speech spectral distortion measures. The principle results are 1) the development of notions of relative strength and equivalence of the various distortion measures both in a mathematical sense corresponding to subjective equivalence and in a coding sense when used in minimum distortion or nearest neighbor speech processing systems; 2) the demonstration that the Itakura-Saito and related distortion measures possess a property similar to the triangle inequality when used in nearest neighbor systems such as quantization and cluster analysis; and 3) that the Itakura-Saito and normaliz...
