Challenges of Korea Speech Recognition

From:Nexdata Date:2024-04-02

Korean is the official language of North Korea and South Korea, two countries on the Korean peninsula with the Korean nation as the main ethnic group. It is an adhering language. The natural vocabulary of Korean is composed of a large number of morphemes, and the language has rich phonological changes.

Adhesive language is a language category in language morphology, and this category of language needs to rely heavily on the inflection of morphemes to express grammatical relations. Since the main research object of speech recognition technology in the development process is analytic language or low-inflection language, the sticky characteristic poses many challenges to mainstream speech recognition technology.

Korean Speech Recognition Challenge

The first is mainly the language model aspect. The natural language units of Korean are words and words separated by spaces. The length is not fixed. It may be a substantive word plus a particle, or it may be a separate substantive word, corresponding to several words in English. The characteristics of agglutinative language make Korean words have a large number of inflections, and the common ones can reach millions, which far exceeds the dictionary size of conventional speech recognition systems.

The second challenge is acoustic model modeling, where the cohesive properties lead to severe co-articulation, which greatly increases the confusion of the acoustic model. The degree of confusion of the acoustic model is weakened by introducing the concept of isotopes, but experiments have shown that although this method is more effective on the monophone acoustic model modeling unit, it is not effective on the triphone used in conventional speech recognition systems. The effect on the acoustic model modeling unit is not ideal.
