A sequential repetition model for improved disfluency detection

  title={A sequential repetition model for improved disfluency detection},
  author={Mari Ostendorf and Sangyun Hahn},
This paper proposes a new method for automatically detecting disfluencies in spontaneous speech – specifically, selfcorrections – that explicitly models repetitions vs. other disfluencies. We show that, in a corpus of Supreme Court oral arguments, repetition disfluencies can be longer and more stutterlike than the short repetitions observed in the Switchboard corpus and suggest that they can be better represented with a flat structure that covers the full sequence. Since these disfluencies are… CONTINUE READING
