ChunkitApp: Investigating the Relevant Units of Online Speech Processing

Svetlana Vetchinnikova, Anna Mauranen, Nina Mikušová


This paper presents a web-based application for tablets ‘ChunkitApp’ developed to investigate chunking in online speech processing. The design of the app is based on recent theoretical developments in linguistics and cognitive science, and in particular on the suggestions of Linear Unit Grammar [1]. The data collected using the app provides evidence for the reality of online chunking in language processing and the validity of the construct. In addition to experimental uses, the app has potential applications in language education and speech recognition.
