AbstractWe aim to modelinfants’ perception and representation of temporal information that is presentin infant directed speech and singing, using connectionist computational models(neural networks). In our approach, we consider the sound patterning, presentin both speech and singing, in terms of timing and accent.  The model receives audio on the input.Subsequently, different features are computed, according to different processesoperating in parallel. Finally, we compute a representational transition, whichlearns categorical structured representations in terms of communicationpurposes from unstructured examples. In addition, we propose experiments toperform with the model. With these experiments we aim to study the developmentof representations from undifferentiated whole sounds to the relations betweenattributes that compose those sounds.
