The central notion of segmentation of the speech chain is investigated in some detail. Examples that do not fit easily with the process of cross-parametric slicing are considered. The development of the ability to segment in humans is discussed and its relationship to reading an alphabetic script. A non-segmental approach which integrates syntagmatic features of the speech chain, is argued for, to be developed in the following two chapters.

Keywords: Segmentation; cross-parametric slicing; syntagmatic features
