Data of the optical reflectivity measurements obtained in far and middle infrared regions for 11 sample of CdxHg1-xTe (x=0.06-0.7) in temperature interval from 20 K to 293 K with using of synchrotron radiation (DAFNE- LIGHT in LNF, Italy) as source are presented. The curves of Im e (w) obtained by Kramers-Kroning transformation were analyzed by  Lorentzian-approximation of dielectric function using model of deformed tetrahedra. Beside 8 canonical phonon modes observed earlier by Kozyrev [1], where the region below 120 cm-1 was excluded from consideration, the additional several  lines were observed  by us in this region. The same lines were presented in publications of another authors [2]. Our analysis is based on data for samples of different types (n- and p-type) and technology as well as on temperature dependences of the discussed line intensity in region from 70 cm-1 to 118 cm-1. This analyze shown that two kinds of lines are observed in this region: first type – generated  by electronic structure; second one – generated by oscillations in defect-bearing tatrahedra. The last one are Additional Phonon Modes observed earlier in CdTe [3]. [1] Kozyrev  et. al. Phys. Rev. B, 58,3,1374(1998), ; [2] Li Biao, Appl.phys.lett, 73,11,1538,(1998); [3] Polit J.
