In many applications, Chinese information is very often provided in the form of phonetic symbol sequences, and it is desired to decode such sequences into the corresponding Chinese character sequences (sentences) as the output. Phonetic input of Chinese characters into computers is a typical example. The problem is due primarily to the high degree of ambiguities caused by the large number of homonyms in Mandarin Chinese. In this paper, Markov models for Mandarin Chinese are developed to solve… CONTINUE READING
