Table 2.1: Overall results of the two networks after
2750 epochs (or about 4 million
words) of training. The upper table is for all the events

five times: once per fixation position. The lower table
is only for individual words.
This section presents the results of the networks after training for 2750 epochs. It will start off by discussing the overall results about of the networks’ performance and then go on to list more detailed results in order to compare the two networks.
In this section some general results about both networks will be discussed, showing that there is virtually no difference in the general overall performance of both networks. A more detailed analysis will follow in subsequent sections. Note that all of the following results only include non-homographic words. An analysis of the 14 homographs (70 events) in the training corpus follows in a separate section. The homographs were left out from the current (and subsequent) analysis because the networks will inevitable get one of the possible pronunciations wrong. This is because there is nothing in the
