The aim of this paper is to evaluate the influence of the vowel on the previous consonant cluster. We use the French Sounds Database (BDSONS) which proposes monosyllabic read words; we can thus opposite triple occurrences such as [pra]/[pri]/[pru]. We measure spectral material (F1 and F2) at center and 3/4 of the consonants duration. As we expected, the first consonant is less influenced than the second. But we note that the consonant itself and its acoustical specificities are an important factor to characterise the variation effects.
