In this work, the concept of conditional Lempe-Ziv encoder is presented. This concept is used to establish a variant of the Lempel-Ziv-Welch encoder (LZW). The practical performance of the new version is measured by using the Canterbury Corpus and it is compared to the performance of the LZW. The new version has shown an improvement around 10% over the LZW, when compressing the Canterbury Corpus.
