It has been observed that in production, the boundary between the vowels /i/ and /e/ is diagonal, i.e. it involves both F1 and F2; in perception, by contrast, the boundary has been observed to be horizontal, i.e. listeners do not use F2 as a cue for distinguishing the two vowels. The same is true of the /u-o/ boundary. With computer simulations of virtual language learners we show that this perception-production discrepancy can be explained if vowels are structured as bundles of phonetically based phonological features.
