Book Information

   

Title: The Origins of Vowel Systems
Written By: Bart de Boer
Series Title: Studies in the Evolution of Language
Description:

This book addresses universal tendencies of human vowel systems from the point of view of self-organization. It uses computer simulations to show that the same universal tendencies found in human languages can be reproduced in a population of artificial agents. These agents learn and use vowels with human-like perception and production, using a learning algorithm that is cognitively plausible. The implications of these results for the evolution of language are then explored.
