phonics-package: Phonetic Spelling Algorithms

Description Details Author(s) See Also


Encode words with English-language Metaphone


The phonics package provides an implementation of the Metaphone phonetic algorithm in R. The algorithm reduces a string to a symbolic representation approximating the sound. It can be used to match names, words, and as a proxy for assorted string distance algorithms.
