Text::TransMetaphone::he - Transcribe Hebrew words into IPA symbols.
This module is used by Text::TransMetaphone and need not be used directly.
The Text::TransMetaphone::he module implements the TransMetaphone algorithm for Hebrew.
The module provides a
trans_metaphone function that accepts an Hebrew word as an argument and returns a list of keys transcribed into IPA symbols under Hebrew 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 Hebrew orthography.
The Hebrew module applies basic phonetic mappings to generate keys. Presently one new key is created per substitution set. However one key *should* be created for each individual substitution. This will be fixed in a future release. The module will be updated as more rules of Hebrew orthography are learnt.
