This paper is intended to provide a general orientation regarding the articulatory phonetics of the languages involved in the SAM project, as described in Wells (1987): it comprises a brief statement of the phonemic system of each language (the consonants and vowels, and how they are transcribed), together with notes on the most salient realizational and suprasegmental characteristics. As in Wells (1987), the objective is to assign a computer-coded phonemic notation, referred to as SAM-PA… 

A MetaPhoneme inventory

This paper explores the possibility of establishing a phoneme inventory for a group of languages in which language-speciic phonemes function as "allophones" of newly deened meta-phonemes and shows how they can be incorporated in a multilingual inheritance-based lexicon.

ITRI-00-33 A MetaPhoneme Inventory

This paper focuses on the sharing of phonolog-ical information in a multilingual inheritance-based lexicon. It explores the possibility of establishing a phoneme inventory for a group of languages in

Machine readable phonetic transcription system for Chinese dialects spoken in Taiwan

The proposed phonetic transcription system specifically aims to transcribe three major Chinese dialects spoken in Taiwan, namely, Mandarin, Taiwanese and Hakka, which is a more language-dependent system rather than a general system as the IPA.

ASCII Phonetic Symbols for the World''s Languages: Worldbet

The general principles of Worldbet are covered, which are an attempt to have a phonetic alphabet which covers all of the world's languages in a systematic fashion, and a standard method for constructing new symbols is presented.

A syllable-based approach to verbal morphology in Arabic

A further development of this syllable-based approach to morphological representation is described which includes a larger number of verbs, a complete account of the agreement inflections and accounts for one of the oft-cited problems for Arabic morphology, the weak forms.

Cross Linguistic Phoneme Correspondences

The theory of metaphonemes is presented, comparing them with traditional archi- and morphophonemes as well as with similar work using "keysymbols" done for accents of English.

Incorporating Metaphonemes in a Multilingual Lexicon

A framework for multilingual inheritance-based lexical representation which allows sharing of information across languages at all levels of linguistic description is described, and how these metaphonemes can be incorporated in a multilingual lexicon is shown.

ITRI-00-09 Incorporating Metaphonemes in a Multilingual Lexicon

A framework for multilingual inheritance-based lexical representation which allows sharing of information across languages at all levels of linguistic description is described, which shows how language-specific phonemes function as “allophones” of newly defined metaphonemes in a multilingual lexicon.

Multilingual models in the IBM bilingual text-to-speech systems
