The report concerns the problem of recognizing a speaker from an unknown utterence uttered under uncontrolled conditions. This problem is studied in the broader perspective of the relationships between the speaker and the phoneme in producing the final utterence. The utterence could be a word or a phrase. As is well known, there are two aspects of speaker recognition. First of all there is the problem of checking whether the utterence is from a person in a known group or from an imposter - the so called speaker verification problem. Secondly the authors want to determine the identity of the speaker from the utterence given that the utterence comes from one of the persons from a known group - the so called speaker identification problem.
