Nonsegmental phonology

  

  Lexical knowledge representation at the phonological level of description is usually segmental, based on phonemes or feature representations. A standard feature bundle representation is just a simple sequence of segments which contains no explicit temporal information. For particular speech tasks, however, a nonsegmental description based on autosegmental  representation, gestural scores or event representations may be more desirable. In the discussion which follows, we will extend our descriptions to deal with nonsegmental representations.
