Discriminant linear processing of time-frequency plane

Extending previous works done on considerably smaller data sets, the paper studies linear discriminant analysis of about 30 hours of phoneme-labeled speech data in the time-frequency domain. Analysis is carried both independently in time and frequency and jointly. Data driven spectral basis show similar frequency sensitivity as human hearing. LDA-derived temporal FIR filters are consistent with temporal lateral inhibition. Considerable improvement is obtained using first temporal discriminant.
