Abstract:

The report describes LPARS, a locally organized parsing system designed to recognize continuous speech, accepting as its input a string of phonemes which contains ambiguity and error. LPARS is locally organized in the sense that it can construct local parse structures from word candidates found in all parts of the input utterance. These local structures are used as islands of reliability and, together with syntactic and semantic information, guide the search for words to complete the utterance.
