Abstract: There weren't extensive studies on acoustical properties of consonants of standard Lithuanian and its dialects. Investigations up to this date were limited to a few particular consonant cases. In this paper, we investigate durations of a broader class of sounds known as plosive consonants. Investigations are based on a corpus of continuous speech containing about 11 thousand plosive sounds and 2.8 thousand plosive sounds from the Vytautas Magnus University Lithuanian speech corpus. Plosive duration data has been statistically analyzed. Investigations aimed at measuring influence of articulation place, voicing and palatalization on consonant duration. The influence of tempo and intonation on plosive duration has been partially addressed as well. The results show that plosives bilabial consonants are longer than lingua-dentals and backlinquals. The voiceless consonants are about 1.2 times longer than the voiced consonants. The statistical analysis shows that these are reliable consonants quantity differences. The quantity of consonants does not depend on the palatalization
