A two-level approach to the handling of foreign items in Swedish speech technology applications

Anders Lindström, Anna Kasaty

The functional criteria of a lexical component for Swedish speech recognition and speech synthesis systems are defined and extended with demands regarding proper treatment of foreign features on several linguistic levels. A corpus of Stockholm Swedish, judged to be representative of a variety spoken by younger people, is studied, and necessary extensions on the phonological and morphological level are suggested and implemented in a two-level framework - PC-Kimmo. This "extended" two-level description of Swedish is tested on some examples of English loan words and phrases drawn from the corpus.
