 Finite State Models and Event Logics in Speech Recognition

 Julie Carson-Berndsen
 University of Bielefeld, Germany

Time Map Phonology addresses key areas of sound structure at which the two
technologies of natural language processing and speech technology are
beginning to converge. Solutions are presented to the problems of how to
process words which have not been heard before and how to develop
fine-grained knowledge representation and processing techniques for
linguistic units smaller than the word. The solutions are based on a
careful comparison of linguistic theories and on the investigation of
computational techniques for the next generation of flexible spoken
language input and output devices. The approach has been fully implemented
for the vocabulary of German and subjected to quantitative evaluation.
