Abstract: We investigate the effects of different silence modelling strategies in Weighted Finite-State Transducers for Automatic Speech Recognition. We show that the choice of silence models, and the way they are included in the transducer, can have a significant effect on the size of the resulting transducer; we present a means to prevent particularly large silence overheads. Our conclusions include that context-free silence modelling fits well with transducer based grammars, whereas modelling silence as a monophone and a context has larger overheads.
