In this paper, an efficient integration of lexical information in a phonetic finite states automaton is presented. The approach is specially suitable for modelling coarticulation occurring inter and intra words. This approach has been used to extend a speech recognition system in order to give the N-Best sentences of words, not acoustic units, and to build complex lexical trees.
