1. A computer-implemented speech recognition method for selecting a combination of list elements via a speech input, wherein a first list element of the combination is part of a first set of list elements and a second list element of the combination is part of a second set of list elements, the method comprising:

  • receiving at a processor the speech input;

    comparing within the processor each list element of the first set of list elements with the speech input to obtain a first candidate list of best matching list elements;

    processing the second set of list elements using the first candidate list to obtain a subset of the second set of list elements;

    comparing each list element of the subset of the second set of list elements with the speech input to obtain a second candidate list of best matching list elements; and

    selecting a combination of list elements using the first and the second candidate lists wherein selecting a combination of list elements comprises;

    determining combinations of a list element of the first candidate list with a related list element of the second candidate list;

    scoring each determined combination by combining the score of the list element of the first candidate list and the score of the related list element of the second candidate list; and

    determining a result list wherein the result list comprises best matching combinations of a list element of the first set of list elements and a list element of the second set of list elements.
