SYMBOLIC REPRESENTATION A symbolic representation is an abstract representation of some phenomenon (object or process) which may itself be physical or cognitive. In speech production and perception studies, for example, a sequence of symbols like the IPA can be used to transcribe a cognitive representation of the speech sound wave. It is usually assumed that the corresponding cognitive representation takes the form of symbols in the speaker’s or listener’s mind. In classical phonetics the IPA can transcribe the phonetician’s more objective, trained view of the acoustic signal.

This has led some researchers to question whether in running speech it makes sense to speak of the beginning and end of a sound. 2 above); the blending is so serious in most cases that identifying the beginning and end of sounds is usually impossible; but phoneticians and listeners need nevertheless to get at what underlies this continuous signal. There is another way of looking at things. Instead of trying to cut the signal up into short stretches, the phonetician can identify general areas of the sound stream which are associated with the speaker’s intention to produce a sequence of different sounds.

PHYSICAL WORLD The physical world is the world outside the human mind, contrasting with the abstract world which exists only in the mind. The physical world is open to objective measurement – such as the measurement of the properties of the sound wave. SPEECH EVENT Speech event is a term often used ambiguously to mean an actual physical event such as an articulation or acoustic signal, or to mean the speaker’s intention of that event or the listener’s perception of the event. It is sensible to clarify the term whenever it is used.
