EEG based vowel classification is currently gaining importance for its increasing applications in the next
generation mind-driven type-writing. This paper addresses a novel approach to classify the mentally uttered alphabets in a specific three lettered format, where the first and the last letter represent two vowel sounds and the middle is a space, where no character is imagined. Such formatting helps recognizing 26 alphabets in English language using seven vowel sounds only. To eliminate the possible infiltration of noise by parallel thoughts we used a specialized neuro-fuzzy classifier, where the first layer of the classifiers realized with fuzzy logic eliminates the possible creeping of noise due to
side active channel interference. Two models of fuzzy pre-processing are used. The first one is realized with type-1 fuzzy logic, whereas the second model is realized with interval type-2 fuzzy sets. The latter model can take care of both intra- and inter-personal level uncertainty in measurements. Experiments undertaken reveal that the proposed type-2 fuzzy classifier outperforms both type-1 and traditional neural classifiers by a significant margin.
