In this paper we present ONTOSCORE, a sys- tem for scoring sets of concepts on the basis of an ontology. We apply our system to the task of scoring alternative speech recognition hypotheses (SRH) in terms of their semantic coherence. We conducted an annotation exper- iment and showed that human annotators can reliably differentiate between semantically co- herent and incoherent speech recognition hy- potheses.
