Hi


Julius man page says -

2-gram and reverse 3-gram  language  models  are  used. The Standard  ARPA  format  is  supported.  In addition, a binary format N-gram is also supported  for  efficiency.   The  tool mkbingram can convert binary N-gram from the ARPA language models.

So I dont understand now if any n-gram can be used or only specifically 2 gram and reverse 3-gram.Since there are 3-gram language models available on CMU Sphinx page which can now be used for julius.

 

Also please give any pointers on where a language model for julius can be found. Thanks a ton

See Keith vertanen's: English Gigaword language model training recipe

I don't think you need reverse 3-grams with the newest version on Julius.
