The paper addresses the problem of discrimination of homographs when a lengthy segment of an uttered word is missing. The considered discrimination procedure is done by recognizer that operates on cepstrum coefficients extracted from the speech signal. For restoration of the missing speech segment rather than use of the known speech signal, it has been proposed to calculate speech signal characteristics: the period of fundamental frequency and intensity. By experimentation it has been shown
