Khalil IskarousTask dynamics: theory and practice

Task Dynamics is an explicit computational model of the speech production system, which applies the dynamical systems approach to speech. It models the planning and execution stages—from gestures and their overlap to articulatory motions and acoustics …

Ioana ChitoranTopics in speech dynamics

These lectures explore dynamic representations in phonology, primarily (but not exclusively) in
the model of Articulatory Phonology. The focus is on the syllable as an essential unit underlying
both the temporal complexity of speech and phonological organization…

John KingstonThe speaker, the hearer and articulatory control

One might expect that a conversation would be a cooperative act, in which the speaker tries to
be understood, while the listener tries to understand…

Osvaldo de Oliveira Jr.Natural language processing: challenges and applications

Some of the innovations brought about by information technology, such as search machines for the Internet and voice-controlled equipment, bring natural language
processing (NLP) to the forefront of science and echnology areas with great prospects of increasing impact in the near future …

Jorge LuceroArticulation kinematics and modeling of larynx, vocal tract and face

The vocal chords in the larynx are an aeroelastic oscillator, which act as a source of sound in voice production. Under proper conditions, air flows through
the glottis and induces its oscillation…

Didier Demolin, Eleonora AlbanoPhonetic data collection and analysis

Speech is a complex dynamic phenomenon. How to collect phonetic data in the various phases of the speech process?

Dinafon stands for Dinâmica Fônica, i.e., speech dynamics, and expresses the research interests of a group of phonologists/phoneticians directed by Eleonora Albano.
