Presents a study on the portability of statistical syntactic knowledge in the framework of the structured language model (SLM). We investigate the impact of porting SLM statistics from the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) to the Air Travel Information System (ATIS) domain. We compare this approach to applying the Microsoft rule-based parser (NLP-win) for the ATIS data and to using a small amount of data manually parsed at UPenn for gathering the initial SLM statistics. Surprisingly, despite the fact… Expand
