This paper investigates the issues that are associated with applying speech production models to automatic speech recognition (ASR). The applicability of articulatory representations to ASRis considered here independent of the role of articulatory representations in speech perception. While the issue of whether it is necessary or even possible for human listeners to recover the state of the articulators during the process of perceiving speech is an important one, it is not considered here. Hence, we refrain from posing completely new paradigms for ASR which more closely parallel the relationship between speech production and human speech understanding. Instead, we describe work aimed at integrating speech production models into existing ASR formalisms.
