An important aspect of distinctive feature based approaches to automatic speech recognition is the formulation of a framework for robust detection of these features. We discuss the application of the support vector machines (SVM) that arise when the structural risk minimization principle is applied to such feature detection problems. In particular, we(More)
We consider the possibility of incorporating distinctive features into a statistically based speech recognizer. We develop a two pass strategy for recognition with a standard HMM based first pass followed by a second pass that performs an alternative analysis to extract class-specific features. For the voiced/voiceless distinction on stops for an alphabet(More)
