Korean unvoiced phonemes consist of nonstationary parts comparing that the vowels and nasal consonants consist of quasi-stationary part. And some phonemes, which have smae point of articulation but differnt manner of articulation, has similar characteristics, so it makes to be hard to distinguish each other. A new method usin gchanges and characteristics of acoustic properties of these phonemes to improve recognition rate are proposed. And because these changes and cahracteristics evidently occur in continuous speech except some unvoiced consonants are articulated as voiced phoneme in case to be used as an midial between voiced phonemes, this method can be applied easily. The features of the frames extracted to represent each phonemes are used asinputs to the hierarchical neural network. And with these results final decision for phoneme recognition is made thorugh post processing which the new method is applied to. Through the experimental recognition results for 9 unvoiced consonants which belong to bilabial, alveolar, and velar phoneme series, 89.4% recognition rate to distinguish in same phoneme series is obtained, and 85.6% recognition rate is obtained in case of including cistinguishing phoneme series.
