The Past-Tense Acquisition Model
This implemented network model was trained to convert English phrases into the past tense. Although the network’s performance can be described by rules, no actual rules are utilised in its processing.
David Rumelhart & James McClelland (1986).

Note: More recent work along these lines includes that of Mark Seidenberg & James McClelland (1989).
