August 9 (Week 8) – Maury

Today, I finished performing my own linear interpolation of the “general” corpus and “by-learners” corpus. And I know it works because its perplexity across the test set is exactly the same as the perplexity given by the SRILM-interpolated model across the same corpus. The only catch is that the linear interpolation script does not work with higher order n-grams. So, today I am going to spend time making that change. With that, I also need to research how the back-off weights are interpolated for higher order n-grams.
