1. A method for automatically generating a text message from an arbitrary speech input, comprising steps for:

  • receiving a statistical language model trained using one or more sets of real-world text messages as training input;

    receiving a text message database constructed using a subset including some or all of the text messages in the one or more sets of real-world text messages received as the training input;

    receiving an arbitrary user speech input;

    evaluating the speech input relative to the probabilistic model and text message database to return a set of one or more probable speech recognition hypotheses corresponding to the arbitrary user speech input;

    identifying a set of one or more text messages from the text message database as probabilistic matches to one or more of the speech recognition hypotheses;

    ranking the probabilistically matching text messages in an order corresponding to a probabilistic confidence score associated with each speech recognition hypothesis;

    selecting the highest ranked text message to paraphrase the arbitrary user speech input; and

    transmitting the single selected text message to one or more recipients.
