We propose a novel approach to automatic spoken language identification (LID) based on vector space modeling (VSM). It is assumed that the overall sound characteristics of all spoken languages can be covered by a universal collection of acoustic units, which can be characterized by the acoustic segment models (ASMs). A spoken utterance is then decoded into a sequence of ASM units. The ASM framework furthers the idea of language-independent phone models for LID by introducing an unsupervised… CONTINUE READING
