A method for assigning a word to many classes based on the context in which the word occurs is presented. A trigram language model is used to determine the classes which are called statistical synonyms for that word. This classification method is used to build an adaptive language model that incorporates unknown words after their first occurrence by using their statistical synonyms in determining the model's probabilities for the added words. It is shown that the dynamic coverage of the language model increases significantly with a rather low perplexity on the added words
