An Application to Support Stuttering People by Implementing Linguistic Variable Based on Fuzzy Logic

Dr. Ashit Kumar Dutta


Fuzzy logic is the idea behind the artificial intelligence and automated machines are the brain child of it. Linguistic variable are the special type of variables used in the fuzzy logic to represent the characteristic of an object. The scope of the fuzzy concept is wide and implemented successfully in the field of science. Stuttering or stammering is the speech syndrome causes improper speech or broken accent and make people to afraid to speak in public areas. The aim of the paper is to design an application to support stuttering people to reduce their problem and improve their life style. The research utilises the concept of linguistic variable in fuzzy logic and develop the application.
