Text::TransMetaphone::ja_hiragana - Transcribe Hiragana words into IPA symbols.
This module is used by Text::TransMetaphone and need not be used directly.
The Text::TransMetaphone::ja_hiragana module implements the TransMetaphone algorithm for Hiragana.
The module provides a
trans_metaphone function that accepts an Hiragana word as an argument and returns a list of keys transcribed into IPA symbols under Hiragana 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 Hiragana orthography.
The Hiragana module has limited awareness of Hiragana orthography, no alternative keys are generated at this time. The module will be updated as more rules of Hiragana orthography are learnt.
