This paper presents an efficient method for constructing hig h quality word graphs for large vocabulary continuous speech reco gnition. The word graphs are constructed in a two-pass strate gy. In the first pass, a huge word graph is produced using the timesynchronous lexical tree search method. Then, in the second pass, this huge word graph is pruned by applying a modified forwardbackward algorithm. To analyze the characteristic propert ies of this word graph pruning method, we present a… CONTINUE READING
