Regional accents in Mandarin speech result mostly from partial phone changes due to the interlanguage system of non-native speakers. We propose partial change accent models based on accent-specific units with acoustic model reconstruction for accented Mandarin speech recognition. We use phonological rules of dialectical pronunciations together with likelihood ratio test to model actual accented variants rather than inherent phonetic confusions, recognizer errors or other data-specific… Expand
