FAQ

Answers to frequently asked questions and notes on N-gram smoothing implementations.

Programs

These are the top-level executables that are currently part of SRILM:

ngram-count(1)
count N-grams and estimate language models
ngram-merge(1)
merge N-gram counts
ngram(1)
apply N-gram language models
ngram-class(1)
induce word classes from N-gram statistics
disambig(1)
disambiguate text tokens using an N-gram model
hidden-ngram(1)
tag hidden events between words
nbest-lattice(1)
rescore N-best lists and lattices
nbest-optimize(1)
optimize score combination for N-best word error minimization
nbest-mix(1)
interpolate N-best posterior probabilities
segment(1)
segment text using N-gram language model
segment-nbest(1)
rescore and segment N-best lists using N-gram language models
anti-ngram(1)

multi-ngram(1)
build multiword N-gram models
lattice-tool(1)
manipulate word lattices
nbest-pron-score(1)

Utility Scripts

Additional tools implemented as scripts:

miscellaneous conveniences for language model training
lm-scripts(1)
manipulate N-gram language models
ppl-scripts(1)

nbest-scripts(1)
rescore and evaluate N-best lists
select-vocab(1)

File Formats

Some of the data formats used by SRILM:

ngram-format(5)
ARPA backoff N-gram models
classes-format(5)
Word class definitions
pfsg-format(5)
Decipher(TM) probabilistic finite-state grammars

N-best hypotheses lists
wlat-format(5)
Word posterior lattices

LM Library Classes

These are some of the basic classes of the SRILM library. Note that this list is woefully incomplete, as this part of the documentation is largely yet to be written.

LM(3)
Generic language model
Vocab(3)
Vocabulary indexing for SRILM
Prob(3)
Probabilities for SRILM
File(3)
Wrapper for stdio streams
