Abstract : The objective of this research was to determine the feasibility of recognizing five distinct speech units (interphonemic transitions) in the speech of one speaker. A computer program performed the recognition task based on formant features in the transition regions of the speech data. A comparison of two sequential recognition models revealed that transitions in continuous speech can be more accurately modelled in terms of independent formant sequences than a simple sequence of sounds.
