Text::TransMetaphone::am - Transcribe Amharic words into IPA symbols.
This module is used by Text::TransMetaphone and need not be used directly.
The Text::TransMetaphone::am module implements the TransMetaphone algorithm for Amharic.
The module provides a
trans_metaphone function that accepts an Amharic word as an argument and returns a list of keys transcribed into IPA symbols under Amharic orthography rules.
The last key of the list is a regular expression that matching all previously returned keys.
reverse_key function is also provided to convert an IPA symbol key into a regular expression that would phonological sequence under Amharic orthography.
The Amharic module is the most developed in the TransMetaphone package. It has awareness of common mispelling in Amharic, perhaps too much, the module will produce a high number of keys.
