Abstract

Conclusion:

The above makes it possible to look at segmenting, and subsequently at acoustico-phonetic decoding, from a new and maybe more advantageous angle instead of researching discontinuity, we would resort to the formal instruments of mechanics (or data-analysis) to examine local variations in speech-trajectories that are represented in suitable spaces. Such a representation allows for an ascending description, from acoustics to phonology; while by-passing any a priori (even implicit) phonetic model. At the same time, it seems possible to find a grammar of distortions capable of superposing the several trajectories that correspond to one sequence uttered by several speakers. This kind of results, nevertheless, remains to be confirmed over large speech-corpuses and large numbers of speakers,
