Landmark based speech processing is a component of Lexical Access From Features (LAFF), a novel paradigm for feature based speech recognition. Detection and classi cation of landmarks is a crucial rst step in a LAFF system. This work tests the theoretical characteristics of vowels, and shows results for work in progress on a Vowel Landmark Detector. Acoustic theory predicts rst formant peaks in vowels, both in frequency and amplitude (at least for vowels between orally closed consonants… CONTINUE READING
