The paper presents first results of a research aiming at a more refined definition of the so-called speaking styles. A speaker is recorded in 6 situations and the formants of his /i/, /a/ and /u/ vowels are studied. New categorizations of the speaking styles are proposed, on the basis of the similarities and dissimilarities in formant frequencies values drawn from the various communication situations.
