A model for assigning phonetic and phonemic labels to speech segments is presented. The system executes fuzzy algorithms that assign degrees of worthiness to structured interpretations of syllabic segments extracted from the signal of a spoken sentence. The knowledge source is a series of syntactic rules whose syntactic categories are phonetic and phonemic features detected by a precategorical and a categorical classification of speech sounds. Rules inferred from experiments and results for male and female voices are presented.
