dc.description.abstractThis paper describes two automatic approaches used to study connected speech processes (CSPs) in Dutch. The first approach was from a linguistic point of view - the top-down method. This method can be used for verification of hypotheses about CSPs. The second approach - the bottom-up method -uses a constrained phone recognizer to generate phone transcriptions. An alignment was carried out between the two transcriptions and a reference transcription. A comparison between the two methods showed that 68% agreement was achieved on the CSPs. Although phone accuracy is only 63%, the bottom-up approach is useful for studying CSPs. From the data generated using the bottom-up method, indications of which CSPs are present in the material can be found. These indications can be used to generate hypotheses which can then be tested using the top-down method.en
