This paper proposes the construction of a language model for speech recognition in speech translation. The proposed language model is intended to improve speech recognition performance by taking account of the previous utterance content of the counterpart speaker. The previous utterance content of the counterpart speaker is represented by the intermediate language which is generally used by C-star (Spoken Language Translation Research Group). The proposed model is based on a language model that is dependent on the intermediate language representation. An experiment concerning the conversation of hotel reservations shows that the rate of incorrect word recognition is reduced by approximately 5.4% (from 14.7% to 13.9%), and the usefulness of the proposed model is demonstrated.
