We present work-in-progress on the ma- chine acquisition of a lexicon from sen- tences that are each an unsegmented phone sequence paired with a primitive represen- tation of meaning. A simple exploratory algorithm is described, along with the di- rection of current work and a discussion of the relevance of the problem for child language acquisition and computer speech recognition.
