We discuss an interactive approach to robust, inter- pretation in a large scale speech-to-speech transla- tion system. Where other interactive approaches to robust interpretation ha,re depeuded upon domain dependent repair rules, the approach described here operates etIiciently without any such hand-coded re- pair knowledge and yields a 37% reduction in error rate over a corpus of noisy sentences.
