Figure 9: The directed graph for blending. Vertices represent triphones, including triphones such as IIN that were posited by the graph algorithm to bridge potentially relevant transitions that are not instantiated in the training data. Edges are labelled with their edge weights. The graph, the edge weights of which are specific to the lexomes BLEND and CONTINUOUS, incorporates not only the path for blending, but also the paths for blend, blends, and blended.
