Representation , Learning , Generalization and Damage in Neural Network Models of Reading Aloud

  title={Representation , Learning , Generalization and Damage in Neural Network Models of Reading Aloud},
  author={John A. Bullinaria},
We present a new class of neural network models of reading aloud based on Sejnowski & Rosenberg’s NETtalk. Unlike previous models, they are not restricted to mono-syllabic words, require no complicated inputoutput representations such as Wickelfeatures and require no preprocessing to align the letters and phonemes in the training data. The best cases are able to achieve perfect performance on the Seidenberg & McClelland training corpus (which includes many irregular words) and in excess of 95… CONTINUE READING
