This paper addresses the problem of classification of speech transition sounds. A number of non parametric classifiers are compared, and it is shown that some non-parametric classifiers have considerable advantages over traditional hidden Markov models. Among the non-parametric classifiers, support vector machines were found the most suitable and the easiest to tune. Some of the reasons for the superiority of non-parametric classifiers will be discussed. The algorithm was tested on the voiceddoi:10.21437/eurospeech.2001-422 fatcat:nxgh6hslhbcebbyuqxhiaujlay
