Workshop: Information-Theoretic Principles in Cognitive Systems

Information-theoretic analysis of disfluencies in speech

Shiva Upadhye · Richard Futrell


This study proposes and examines an information-theoretic measure of planning in incremental speech production, and investigates the effects of planning, predictability, and interference-based measures on distractor selection and production in lexical substitution errors. We then present a rate-distortion theoretic model of speech production that explicates how these factors affect the production of lexical substitution errors.
