We present an integrated approach to speech and natural language processing which uses a single parser to create training for a statistical speech recognition component and for interpreting recognized text. On the speech recognition side, our innovation is the use of a statistical model combining N-gram and context-free grammars. On the natural language side, our innovation is the integration of parsing and semantic interpretation to build references for only targeted phrase types. In both components, a semantic grammar and partial parsing facilitate robust processing of the targeted portions of a domain. This integrated approach introduces as much linguistic structure and prior statistical information as is available while maintaining a robust full-coverage statistical language model for ...
