  • Pairwise string alignment (PSA) is an important general technique for obtaining a measure of similarity between two strings, used e.g., in dialectology, historical linguistics, transliteration, and in evaluating name distinctiveness. The current study focuses on evaluating different PSA methods at the alignment level instead of via the distances it induces. About 3.5 million pairwise alignments of Bulgarian phonetic dialect data are used to compare four algorithms with a manually corrected gold… CONTINUE READING
