concept of representation in the speech sciences (trying again)
In my opiniom concepts involving representations are too obscure in the
speech sciences. I have got the impression that authors are often telling
about different things by employing the same words.
At the moment I am struggling with questions concerning the demarcation
line (or grey zone) between phonetic and phonologtical representations.
However my attempts have been virtualy unsuccesful. It seems that tare is no
great concern in clearing up this concepts in spite of the overspread use of
the terms (or maybe I am looking for answers in the wrong places)
In speech neurosciences, for exemple, with few exceptions, we never know
exactly what does one means by the term "representation", and it gets even
worse when it is associated with the words "phonological" or "phonetic".
I would appreciate some commentaries and indications of interesting papers.
