PlanArt: A modular platform for computational modeling of articulatory planning

Abstract / Description of output

We introduce the initial developments of PlanArt, a modular platform for testing different computational modeling approaches for speech articulation planning. The impetus for building this software comes from theoretical debates in the fields of Phonology and Phonetics which have led to vastly different modelling architectures, proposed mechanisms,as well fundamentally different dynamic models of speech articulatory trajectories. One way to address these debates is to test different models using a common platform for model testing in different contexts. In this paper, we present the platform architecture, designed to initially compare two Optimal Control Theory approaches: (1) Šimko & Cummins ’Embodied Task Dynamics based on Articulatory Phonology, and (2) Turk & Shattuck-Hufnagel’s XT/3C approach based on symbolic phonological planning. In addition, we discuss some of the challenges of this type of modelling task.
