Publication date1992

Recent efforts to model the remarkable ability of humans to recognize speech and words are described. Different techniques including the use of neural nets for representing phonological similarity between words in the lexicon with self organizing algorithms are discussed. Simulations using the standard Kohonen algorithm are presented to illustrate some problems confronted with this technique in modeling similarity relations of form in the human mental lexicon. Alternative approaches that can potentially deal with some of these limitations are sketched.
