Abstract : The theory of formal grammars is widely used in computer science and linguistics. Hidden Markov models are well established in automatic speech recognition. This expository memorandum sets out the links between the two areas, via stochastic grammars, and points to stochastic context-free grammars as an interesting area for practical application.
