Recurrent neural network language models (RNNLM) have become an increasingly popular choice for state-of-the-art speech recognition systems due to their inherently strong generalization performance. As these models use a vector representation of complete history contexts, RNNL Ms are normally used to rescore N-best lists. Motivated by their intrinsic characteristics, two novel lattice rescoring methods for RNNL Ms are investigated in this paper. The first uses an n-gram style clustering of history contexts. The second approach directly exploits the distance measure between hidden history vectors. Both methods produced 1-best performance comparable with a 10k-best rescoring baseline RNNLM system on a large vocabulary conversational telephone speech recognition task. Significant lattice size compression of over 70% and consistent improvements after confusion network (CN) decoding were also obtained over the N-best rescoring approach.
