This chapter presents another kind of the artificial system in which, by contrast with Chapter 6, it will not be assumed that the agents are capable from the outset of retrieving articulatory representations of the sounds which they hear. This capacity will be learned through generic neural architecture. The chapter also makes use of a model of the human vocal tract for vowel production, specifies the analogy between artificial and human systems. It shows that the statistical regularities which describe the vowel systems of populations of artificial agents are very similar to those of the vowel systems of human languages.

Keywords:   perceptuo-motor correspondences, artificial system, neural architecture, vocal tract, vowel systems, agents, acoustic representation, sound perception, vocalization
