We consider the problem of detecting stop consonants in continuously spoken speech. We pose the problem as one of finding the optimal filter (linear or non-linear) that operates on a particular appropriately chosen representation. We discuss the performance of several variants of a canonical stop detector and consider its implications for human and machine speech recognition.
