Introduction to the special issue on statistical language modeling
Jianfeng Gao, Chin-Yew Lin
Pages: 87-93
DOI: 10.1145/1034780.1034781

Lexical triggers and latent semantic analysis for cross-lingual language model adaptation
Woosung Kim, Sanjeev Khudanpur
Pages: 94-112
DOI: 10.1145/1034780.1034782

In-domain texts for estimating statistical language models are not easily found for most languages of the world. We present two techniques to take advantage of in-domain text resources in other languages. First, we extend the notion of...

A hybrid language model based on a combination of N-grams and stochastic context-free grammars
Diego Linares, José-Miguel Benedí, Joan-Andreu Sánchez
Pages: 113-127
DOI: 10.1145/1034780.1034783

In this paper, a hybrid language model is defined as a combination of a word-based <i>n</i>-gram, which is used to capture the local relations between words, and a category-based stochastic context-free grammar (SCFG) with a word...

A discriminative HMM/N-gram-based retrieval approach for mandarin spoken documents
Berlin Chen, Hsin-Min Wang, Lin-Shan Lee
Pages: 128-145
DOI: 10.1145/1034780.1034784

In recent years, statistical modeling approaches have steadily gained in popularity in the field of information retrieval. This article presents an HMM/N-gram-based retrieval approach for Mandarin spoken documents. The underlying characteristics...

Example-based sentence reduction using the hidden markov model
Minh Le Nguyen, Susumu Horiguchi, Akira Shimazu, Bao Tu Ho
Pages: 146-158
DOI: 10.1145/1034780.1034785

Sentence reduction is the removal of redundant words or phrases from an input sentence by creating a new sentence in which the gist of the original meaning of the sentence remains unchanged. All previous methods required a syntax parser before...

A maximum-entropy chinese parser augmented by transformation-based learning
Pascale Fung, Grace Ngai, Yongsheng Yang, Benfeng Chen
Pages: 159-168
DOI: 10.1145/1034780.1034786

Parsing, the task of identifying syntactic components, e.g., noun and verb phrases, in a sentence, is one of the fundamental tasks in natural language processing. Many natural language applications such as spoken-language understanding, machine...
