Syntactic Recognition of Speech Patterns

  • R. DeMori
Part of the Communication and Cybernetics book series (COMMUNICATION, volume 14)


Syntactic methods can be profitably used for automatically interpreting speech patterns because most of the phonetic knowledge of a language is available in terms of descriptions of spectral patterns or linguistic events.
