The paper describes the combined use of three new language modelling paradigms. They are: generation of plausible trigrams by analogy, explanation-based generation of error-correcting automata, and disambiguation using Semantic Classification Trees. Tangible word error rate reduction is observed by the combined use of these paradigms.
