Automatic Language Identification Using Phoneme and Automatically Derived Unit Strings

Language identification (LID) based on phono-tactic modeling is presented in this paper. Approaches using phoneme strings and strings of units automatically derived by an Ergodic HMM (EHMM) are compared. The phoneme recognizers were trained on 6 languages from OGI multi-language-corpus and Czech SpeechDat-E. The LID results are obtained on 4 languages. The… CONTINUE READING
