Text::TransMetaphone::el - Transcribe Greek words into IPA symbols.
This module is used by Text::TransMetaphone and need not be used directly.
The Text::TransMetaphone::el module implements the TransMetaphone algorithm for Greek.
The module provides a
trans_metaphone function that accepts an Greek word as an argument and returns a list of keys transcribed into IPA symbols under Greek 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 Greek orthography.
The Greek module has limited awareness of Greek orthography, no alternative keys are generated at this time. The module will be updated as more rules of Greek orthography are learnt.
This module is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the same terms as Perl itself.
The /i substitution switch isn't working for Greek in some cases. Some vowels used in Greek also are not being stripped out. Fixes will be provided in a future release.
