We propose a method of incorporating a non-probabilistic grammar into large vocabulary continuous speech recognition (LVCSR). Our basic assumption is that the utterances to be recognized are grammatical to a sufficient degree, which enables us to decrease the word error rate by favouring grammatical phrases. We use a parser and a handcrafted grammar to identify grammatical phrases in word lattices produced by a speech recognizer. This information is then used to rescore the word lattice. We measured the benefit of our method by extending an LVCSR baseline system (based on hidden Markov models and a 4-gram language model) with our rescoring component. We achieved a statistically significant reduction in word error rate compared to the baseline system
