Many distributional segmentation algorithmsdescribed in the literature can be seen as in stances of the following abstract procedure (Harris, 1955; Gammon, 1969; Saffran et al, 1996; Hutchens and Adler, 1998; Bavaud and Xanthos, 2002)

esize boundaries inside utterances (Aslin et al, 1996; Christiansen et al, 1998; Xanthos, 2004).The second approach is based on the predictabil ity strategy, which assumes that speech shouldbe segmented at locations where some mea sure of the uncertainty about the next symbol(phoneme or syllable for instance) is high (Har ris, 1955; Gammon, 1969; Saffran et al, 1996; Hutchens and Adler, 1998; Xanthos, 2003).Our implementation of the utterance boundary strategy is based on n-grams statistics

We conclude this paper by raising an issue that was already discussed by Gammon (1969),and might well be tackled with our methodology
