This paper outlines the generation process of a specific computational linguistic representation termed the Multilingual Time Map, conceptually a multi-tape finite state transducer encoding linguistic data at different levels of granularity. The first component acquires phonological data from syllable labeled speech data, the second component defines feature profiles, the third component generates feature hierarchies and augments the acquired data with the defined feature profiles, and the fourth component displays the Multilingual Time Map as a graph.
