Abstract [en]

This paper describes a method for modelling phone-level pronunciation in discourse context.Spoken language is annotated with linguistic and related information in several layers. Theannotation serves as a description of the discourse context and is used as training data fordecision tree model induction. In a cross validation experiment, the decision tree pronunciationmodels are shown to produce a phone error rate of 8.1% when trained on all availabledata. This is an improvement by 60.2% compared to using a phoneme string compiled fromlexicon transcriptions for estimating phone-level pronunciation and an improvement by42.6% compared to using decision tree models trained on phoneme layer attributes only.
