Abstract

Using continuous variables derived in information theory and from a Markovian model of phonemic chaining, we have anamysed some strings of jar-gonic speech of French speakers (glossolalics, schizophasics, aphasies, poets) and of natural French2. These anamyses give a quantitative meaning to the concept of phonological plane. Discriminant anamyses separate our groups in a clear-cut fashion. Elementary numerical cmustering provides a meaningful interpretation. This type of approach could bring, in its future developments, further insights into the phonological systems of languages.
