In this work, we try a hybrid methodology for language modeling where both morphological decomposition and factored language model- ing (FLM) are exploited to deal with the com- plex morphology of Arabic language. At the end, we are able to obtain from 3.5% to 7.0% relative reduction in word error rate (WER) with respect to a traditional full-words sys- tem, and from 1.0% to 2.0% relative WER re- duction with respect to a non-factored decom- posed system.
