The identification of phoneme boundaries in continuous speech is an important problem in areas of speech recognition and synthesis. The use of robust parameters to allow a trained data set obtained from one language to be used for boundary identification in another language is being investigated. In particular the use of mixed time- frequency rate parameters, and the training on the change of the rate parameters at acoustic boundaries is reported.
