A note on the generation of allophonic rules

Abstract : Algorithms modeling the acquisition of allophonic rules by infants need a 'standard' allophonic grammar against which to evaluate their results. Because no wide-covering grammar exist in the literature and, most importantly, because allophonic complexity is a parameter that needs to be controlled, a common workaround has been to apply grammars of artificial allophonic rules to phonemically-transcribed corpora. We present a new algorithm to generate such allophonic rules, enforcing their linguistic plausibility using a description of phonemes in terms of distinctive features. Controlling the size of the allophonic grammar, we are able to generate transcriptions of various phonetic granularities.
