The colonial pattern of living and way of speech lingered on until the beginning of the twentieth century.

In science:

Pattern matching problems have been of central interest in such different areas of science as image processing, speech recognition, time series analysis, and biological sequence comparison for a large number of years.
High precision simulations of the longest common subsequence problem
Noteworthy applications include weather states as described by weather variables over a region and speech patterns as characterized by frequencies in time.

Learning string edit distance
Any subset of patterns A ⊂ Y can be regarded as an “interpretation” of the data and we assume there are certain “natural groupings” of this nature (e.g., “writer” in a “Guess Who” version of twenty questions, “noun” in speech recognition and “character” in visual recognition).

Seligman et al. (1994) describe an approach to speech act interpretation in the context of a speech translation system; they restrict their attention to communicative goals which can be explicitly expressed via so-called conventional surface cue patterns rather than deep intentions.
