Abstract Speaking fundamental frequency (F(0)) characteristics were determined for nine centenarian females and nine young adult females. Mean, maximum, and minimum F(0) values were obtained for each subject from a minimum of 20 s of continuous speech. Results indicated that female centenarians have significantly lower mean and minimum speaking F(0) values than young adult females, as well as significantly greater speaking F(0) ranges (in both Hz and semitones). The present results extend the investigation of the ageing continuum as it affects vocal F(0), and indicate that excessively low mean and minimum speaking F(0) values must be considered within the normal spectrum of voice characteristics for the female centenarian population.
