Abstract : Research is summarized on problems concerned with the interpretation of the acoustic parameters of speech and with the use of linguistic information in processing the discrete code derived from these parameters. The summary discusses work on: the theory of phonology, including development of a phonetic theory based on physiological parameters, and a phonemic theory in natural language and mathematical forms; procedures for converting acoustic parameters to phone types or sets of phone types that can be specified on a phonetic basis; a structural description of the phonology of midwest American English dialect; and lexical procedures for automatic speech recognition.
