Abstract and Keywords

The psycholinguistics of speech production has typically been studied separately from the motor control aspects. Psycholinguistic research in this area has largely focused on the construction of frames for combining and manipulating symbols at different levels of the linguistic hierarchy (phrases, words, phonemes, and so on), while motor control research has focused on the biological coordination of muscles for breathing, vocalizing, and articulating. Despite the apparent differences, there are some areas of overlap that offer promising avenues for a unified approach to the investigation of speech production. This chapter discusses recent attempts at synthesizing these viewpoints and presents an example of research conducted under this framework: the development of a computational model of the picture-naming process in individuals with stroke-induced language impairment.

Keywords: speech production, self-monitoring, sensory targets, lexical network, computational model
