The aim of this paper is to describe the experiences gained in the field of language modelling during the LE-3 ARISE (Automatic Railway Information Systems for Europe) project. All of the different techniques presented in this paper are related to the field of Spoken Dialogue Systems, and they cope with the issues of limited amount of training material and the exploitation of the constraints available in a dialogue system. The results obtained may be useful for the future development of similar applications.
