Complex Segment Learner

Complex Segment Learner

Modern Standard Greek (Indo-European)

The simulation is discussed in the paper in the section on phonetics. Greek [ts] and [dz] have been controversial and are the subject of many studies; see Arvaniti 2007 for a great overview of that literature. Our learner does not find any complex segments, supporting the view that [ts] and [dz] are clusters, just like [ps] and [ks] are in Greek.
The Greek corpus is a lemma list from the Corpus of Modern Greek. It was provided to us by Maxim Kisilier. The transcriptions were generated from orthography via a script available here.
