Text::TransMetaphone::chr - Transcribe Cherokee words into IPA symbols.
This module is used by Text::TransMetaphone and need not be used directly.
The Text::TransMetaphone::chr module implements the TransMetaphone algorithm for Cherokee.
The module provides a
trans_metaphone function that accepts an Cherokee word as an argument and returns a list of keys transcribed into IPA symbols under Cherokee 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 Cherokee orthography.
The Cherokee module applies basic phonetic mappings to generate keys. Alternative keys substittue "g" with "k". The module will be updated as more rules of Cherokee orthography are learnt.
