[Vis&Speech] TIMIT phoneme distribution

I like figures because "a figure is worth 1000 words". 

In the illustration below, the distribution of the 39 phoneme on the standard TIMIT corpus are reflected by the size of the circles. 

Meanwhile, the positions of each phoneme actually represented some kind of similarity, although it is not verified by linguistic experts, from what I learned in my English classes, some confusing phones are indeed clustered together.
