Abstract:We describe a Swedish version of CALL-SLT; a web-deployed CALL system that allows beginner/ intermediate students to practise generative spoken language skills. Speech recognition is grammar-based; with language models derived; using the Regulus platform; from substantial domain-independent feature grammars. The paper focusses on the Swedish grammar resources; which were developed by generalising the existing English feature grammar into a shared grammar for English and Swedish. It turns out that this can be done very economically: all but a handful of rules and features are shared; and English grammar essentially ends up being treated as a reduced form of Swedish. We conclude by presenting a simple evaluation which compares the Swedish and French versions of CALL-SLT.
