Pseudo-Articulatory Representations and the Recognition of Syllable Patterns in Speech

William H. Edmondson, Li Zhang

University of Birmingham, UK

This paper presents an account of syllable structure as the basis for organizing articulatory activity. This contrasts with the serial organization of more conventional phonetic segments. It is demonstrated that working with syllables in this way can provide the basis for linguistically motivated speech recognition using the previously reported notion of the Pseudo-Articulatory Representation (PAR).
