The problem of finding a compact phrases list containing as many speech events as possible is addressed. The proposed algorithm performs an iterative selection from a larger set of phrases, properly phonetically transcribed. Algorithm parameters optimization has been attempted; the resulting phrases list composition is assessed by mean of histograms. Applications to speech recognition systems are envisaged.
