This thesis proposes the integration of incremental speech processing with language understanding and cognition. Speech signal obtained from a typical speech front end shall be combined with linguistic knowledge in the form of phonetic, syntactic and semantic knowledge sources with cognition selecting the most likely word incrementally. This non-modular, supraarchitectural integration of spoken language has never been attempted in cognitive architectures making this work novel.
