"Almost Parsing" Technique for Language Modeling

Department of Computer and Information Science, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA

In this paper we present an approach that incorporates structural information into language models without really parsing the utterance. This approach brings together the advantages of a n-gram language model { speed, robustness and the ability to integrate with the speech recognizer with the need to model syntactic constraints, under a uniform representation. We also show that our approach produces better language models than language models based on part-of-speech tags.
