In this paper, we present a new language model that includes some of the most promising techniques for overcoming linguistic inadequacy, - including POS tagging and refining, hierarchical, locally conditioned grammars, parallel modelling of acoustic and linguistic domains - and some of our own: language modelling as language parsing, and a better integration of the whole process with the acoustic model resulting in a richer educt from the language modelling process. We are building this model for a translation into Spanish of the DARPA RM task, maintaining the same 1k words vocabulary and some 1000 sentences.
