Sequence Manipulation Using Parallel Mapping Networks
Article PDF (534.14 KB)
Abstract

We describe a parallel mapping matrix that performs several types of sequence manipulations that are the building blocks of well-known phonological processes. Our results indicate that human phonological behavior can by modeled by a highly constrained connectionist architecture, one that uses purely feedforward circuitry and imposes tight limits on depth of derivations.
