This communication reports the use of demisyllables for continuous speech recognition in a specific application: the recognition of Spanish numbers. After a brief outline of the recognition system, a description of demisyllable syntactic constraints and one-speaker reference generation is provided. Finally, the recognition performance is assessed by means of two experiments: the recognition of integer numbers from zero to one thousand and telephone numbers uttered in a Spanish way (strings of integers from zero to ninety nine), in both applications the results that the system yielded were excellent.
