Abstract

In this paper an HMM/N-gram-based linguistic processing approach for Mandarin spoken document retrieval is presented. The underlying characteristics and different structures of this approach were extensively investigated. The retrieval capabilities were verified by tests with indexing features of word-And syllable(subword)-levels and comparison with the conventional vector space model approach. To further improve the discrimination capabilities of the HMMs, both the expectation-maximization (EM) and minimum classification error (MCE) training algorithms were introduced in training. The information fusion of indexing features of word-And syllable-levels was also investigated. The spoken document retrieval experiments were performed on the Topic Detection and Tracking Corpora (TDT-2 and TDT-3). Very encouraging retrieval performance was obtained.
