Chapter 1: Representations and features

Phonological theory would benefit from making a principled distinction between articulatory and perceptual features and representations.


1.1   Articulatory and perceptual representations of an utterance
1.2   Articulatory, perceptual, and hybrid features
   1.2.1   Articulation versus perception in speech production
   1.2.2   The two targets of speech production: two levels of specification
   1.2.3   Perceptual specifications
   1.2.4   Articulatory specifications
   1.2.5   Perceptual versus articulatory features
   1.2.6   The speech-neutral position and privative features
   1.2.7   Feature geometries
   1.2.8   Conclusion
1.3   Hybrid, articulatory, and perceptual representations
   1.3.1   Hybrid representations
   1.3.2   Articulatory phonology
   1.3.3   The specification - articulation - perception triad
1.4   Formalization of functional principles
