Abstract:

The multi-layer perceptron is investigated as a new approach to the automatic discrimination of spoken minimally distinct word-pairs. The choice of the parameters for the multi-layer perceptron is discussed and experimental results are reported. A comparison is made with hidden Markov modelling applied to the same data. The results, for this particular task, show that the discrimination accuracy obtained using the multi-layer perceptron is superior to that attained using hidden Markov modelling.
