Abstract : This paper focuses on language model adaptation, and more especially on topic identification (TID) for Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR). The structure of a set of topics is redefined by the introduction of a hierarchy. TID models may then make use of the semantic relationships between parent and son nodes of the topic-tree. The originality of the approach presented in this article lies in the allocation of a unique vocabulary to brother nodes, which rests on the use of two backing-off levels. In comparison with TID performance when using a non-hierarchical approach, results encourage us to carry on in this way.
