Understanding Sentences with Relative Clauses: The SPEC System
Active from 1993 - 1994
SPEC is based on the idea that sentence understanding is a controlled process. In SPEC, subsymbolic networks for parsing, memory, and control are integrated into a large modular system that learns to understand sentences with complex relative clause structure. SPEC shows how productive and systematic linguistic performance can be achieved in an entirely subsymbolic system, while still accounting for subsymbolic cognitive phenomena.
