    The Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) is pleased to announce the
    availability of the Chinese-English Translation Lexicon Version 3.0.
    This ftp publication is the result of urgent demand for a
    Chinese-English bilingual wordlist to support various TIDES
    and EARS projects. Previously, the LDC had compiled two versions of
    Chinese-English wordlists, Version 1.0 and Version 2.0, which are
    available for free at:

    In terms of coverage, Version 3.0 is a superset of Version 1.0 and
    the LDC's Mandarin pronunciation lexicon.

    For further information, including details on the differences between
    Version 3.0 and previous versions of this lexicon, please visit:

    Institutions that have membership in the LDC during the 2002
    Membership Year will be able to receive this database free of charge.
    Nonmembers may purchase this publication for $200.


    The LDC has made available the SPINE1 and SPINE2 Language Models
    through our catalog pages. These language models (LM) were
    developed at Carnegie Mellon University for use by SPINE participants.
    They are simple trigram LMs with absolute discounting.

    The SPINE1 Language Model is available through the Speech in Noisy
    Environments (SPINE) Evaluation Transcripts catalog page:

    under 'Updates' and the SPINE2 Language Model is located on the
    Speech in Noisy Environments (SPINE2) Part 3 Transcripts catalog page:

    also under 'Updates'.
