Since Web users’ queries are often too short, an accurate
and interactive speech interface is believed very helpful,
especially for WAP-based Web search engines. To provide
high accurate speech recognition and effective interactive
search, a rigid and live web thesaurus that contains users'
search terms plus a set of relations between their
associated terms is highly in demand. The purpose of this
paper is intended to present a log-based approach for live
thesaurus construction. Based on the live thesaurus,
certain kinds of users' information behaviors could be
characterized and a more effective voice-based search
engine could be developed.
