Acoustic signals having pathological problem are difficult to discriminate from each other. Despite the presence of many features, the difficulties arise from the chaotic and nonlinear nature of these voices. Unlike the existing features, a new feature and feature space are emphasized in this study. Considering the maximum and minimum values of acoustic signals at certain time intervals, the relation between them is revealed and Max-Min space is created. Experimental studies have shown that the space distribution between pathological and normal sounds is completely separated from each other and that the space-scattering field sizes are different from each other. As a result of the studies, a time-based feature is introduced which allows the separation of chaotic and nonlinear acoustic signals in the literature.
