We report on an automatic speech recognition system intended for use in dialogue, whose original aspect is its use of prosodic information for two different purposes. The first is to improve the word level accuracy of the system. The second is to constrain the language model applied to a given utterance by taking into account the way that dialogue context and intonational tune interact to limit the possibilities for what an utterance might be.
