Text::TransMetaphone::en_US - Transcribe American English words into IPA symbols.
This module is used by Text::TransMetaphone and need not be used directly.
This module is a simple port of Maurice Aubrey's Text::DoubleMetaphone module to work under the TransMetaphone premise.
Copyright 2000, Maurice Aubrey <email@example.com>. All rights reserved. Modified for IPA symbols by Daniel Yacob.
This code is based heavily on the C++ implementation by Lawrence Philips, and incorporates several bug fixes courtesy of Kevin Atkinson <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
This module is free software; you may redistribute it and/or modify it under the same terms as Perl itself.
The module is only partially ported to TransMetaphone. Only two keys are returned at this time NOT including a terminal regex key. A "reverse_key" function has not yet been implemented.
