In this paper we report on the extension of capturing speech transitions embedded in diphones using trajectory models. The slowly varying dynamics of spectral trajectories carry much discriminant information that is very crudely modelled by traditional approaches such as HMMs. We improved our methodology of explicitly capturing the trajectory of short time spectral parameter vectors introducing multi-trajectory concepts in a probabilistic framework. Optimal subspace selection is presented which finds the most discriminant plane for classification. Using the E-set from the TIMIT database results suggest that discriminant information is preserved in the subspace.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
