    Speech recognition is the process by which meaning is derived from the acoustic signal. Speech signals are continuous. Before a recognizer can access the meaning of any word occurring in an input, it must decide where the word begins. This would he no problem if speakers provided reliable cues...

    Purpose: The authors examined the involvement of 2 speech motor programming processes identified by S. T. Klapp (1995, 2003) during the articulation of utterances differing in syllable and sequence complexity. According to S. T. Klapp, 1 process, INT, resolves the demands of the programmed unit,...
