In this paper, we studied on the phoneme classification for Korean speech recognition. In the case of making large vocabulary speech recognition system, it is better to use phoneme than syllable or word as recognition unit. And, In order to study the difference of speech recognition according to the number of phoneme as recognition unit, we used the speech toolkit of OGI in U.S.A as recognition system. The result showed that the performance of diphthong being unified was better than that of seperated diphthongs, and we required the better result when we used the biphone than when using mono-phone as recognition unit.
