A Language Model Combining Trigrams and Stochastic Context-Free Grammars

John Gillett, Wayne Ward

Carnegie Mellon University, USA

We propose a class trigram language model in which each class is specified by a probabilistic context-free grammar. We show how to estimate the parameters of the model, and how to smooth these estimates. We present experimental perplexity and speech recognition results.
