1. A speech coding system comprising:

  • transform means for performing a discrete transform of a window of speech to generate a discrete transform spectrum of coefficients;

    envelope defining and encoding means for defining an approximate envelope of the discrete spectrum in each of a plurality of subbands of coefficients and for encoding the defined envelope of each subband of coefficients;

    means for scaling each spectrum coefficient relative to the defined envelope of the respective subband of coefficients; and

    coefficient encoding means for encoding the scaled spectrum coefficients within each subband in a number of bits determined by the defined envelope of the subband.
