Abstract : The experimental investigation of 'numerical' feature words based on 'yes-no' tess, where portions of the word represent quantitative answers to pattern processing questions, is described. Two types of feature-word coding, binary and linear, are discussed and their effects on recognition presented. A method of simplifying the feature word construction by noting the distribution of the weights obtained for the linearly coded feature words is also given. (Author)
