Methods and apparatus for the generation of speaker dependent garbage models from the very same data used to generate speaker dependent speech recognition models, e.g., word models, are described. The technique involves processing the data included in the speaker dependent speech recognition models to create one or more speaker dependent garbage models. The speaker dependent garbage model generation technique involves what may be described as distorting or morphing of a speaker dependent speech recognition model to generate a speaker dependent garbage model therefrom. One or more speaker dependent speech recognition models may then be combined with the generated speaker dependent garbage model to produce an updated garbage model. The scoring of speaker dependent garbage models is varied in accordance with the present invention as a function of the number of speech recognition models from which the speaker dependent garbage model was created. In one embodiment, the number of speaker dependent speech recognition models which are used in generating a speaker dependent garbage model is limited to a preselected maximum number which is empirically determined.
