Abstract

This paper explores the issues involved in using symbolic metric algorithms for automatic speech recognition (ASR), via a structural representation of speech. This representation is based on a set of phonological distinctive features which is a linguistically well-motivated alternative to the ``beads-on-a-string'' view of speech that is standard in current ASR systems. We report the promising results of phoneme classification experiments conducted on a standard continuous speech task.
