Abstract (Summary of the Work)

The dissertation deals with the applicatioin of fusion technology of artifi- cial neural network and fuzzy logic to the contradistinction of Bengali words by considering the first two formant frequencies of the embedded vowel patterns in them.To facilitate the said work we also give a new model of interpreta- tion to the multidimensional fuzzy reasoning and realize the same through a backpropagation type neural network,where the learning stage of the network uses fuzzy linguistic statements as input.Once learned, the nonfuzzy features can be classified by fuzzification of the desired features using fuzzy singleton and then feeding the ensuing fuzzy set to the recognition system followed by defuzzification of the result.The proposed model has been successfully tested for vowel recognition problem of some selected Bengali words.
