Functional Phonology: part I


Chapter 1 discusses the need for a principled distinction between articulatory and perceptual features and representations in phonology. Chapters 2 and 3 introduce a computational model of how we can determine the "automatic" acoustic output from specifications of muscle lengths and tensions. This model will be used to corroborate statements about the interaction between articulation and perception in the "phonological" parts II and III. Chapter 4 treats some models of perception that we will need, and chapter 5 tests the workings of the articulation model in the simulation of vowels and consonants.
