This paper presents the theoretical basis of layered Markov models (LMM), which integrate all the knowledge levels commonly used in automatic speech recognition (acoustic, lexical and language levels) in a single model. Each knowledge level is represented by a set of Markov models (or even hidden Markov models) and all these sets are arranged in a layered structure. Given that common supervised training and recognition paradigms can be also expressed as simple Markov models, they can be… CONTINUE READING
