Exploring Syllable Structure in Connectionist Networks

Abstract

This work explores the typological observation that syllables are asymmetric in their treatment of onsets and codas; many languages permit only onsets, few require codas, and none prohibit onsets. It is theorized that phonetic and computational factors are responsible for these types of syllabic structures, and that optimal syllables are those that enhance… (More)
