Model M, a novel class-based exponential language model, has been shown to significantly outperform word n-gram models in state-of-the-art machine translation and speech recognition systems. The model was motivated by the observation that shrinking the sum of the parameter magnitudes in an exponential language model leads to better performance on unseen… CONTINUE READING
