Experiments on Sentence Boundary Detection
This paper explores the problem of identifying sentence boundaries in the transcriptions produced by automatic speech recognition systems. An experiment which determines the level of human performance for this task is described as well as a memorybased computational approach to the problem. 1 The Problem This paper addresses the problem of identifying sentence boundaries in the transcriptions produced by automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems. This is unusual in the field of text processing which has generally dealt with well-punctuated text: some of the most commonly used texts in NLP are machine readable versions of highly edited documents such as newspaper articles or novels. However, there are many types of text which are not so-edited and the example which we concentrate on in this paper is the output from ASR systems. These differ from the sort of texts normally used in NLP in a number of ways; the text is generally in single case (usually upper), unpunctuated and may contai...
