Abstract : Three aspects of the research activities of the Speech Research Laboratory, School of Electrical Engineering, Purdue University are reported: Segment classification in continuous speech; speech reconstituted from spectra of reduced dimensionality: a study of intelligibility; and statistical characteristics of voice fundamental frequency. Results of these experiments, all of which involve computer processing of speech data, are related to the acoustical correlates of segmental and prosodic linguistic features of speech and to the efficient transmission of information in speech communication systems.
