Oral Culture in the 21st Century: The Case of Speech Processing
Sven E. G. Öhman
Dept Linguistics, Uppsala University, Sweden
In the 20th Century modern scientific research into speech and spoken language was launched by the
pioneering efforts of men like Gunnar Fant, Ken Stevens, Al Liberman, Frank Cooper, and others. As this
research progressed it had gradually to shake off the straight-jacket of traditional grammatical-linguistic
conceptions, and to develop entirely fresh views. This paper will spell out some of the conceptual differences
and discuss their probable consequences for the future in some detail.
