       g2p-sk - phonetic transcription for Slovak


       g2p-sk  [--color]  [--dl  debug  level]  [--help]  [--stats] [--ofile <file_name>] [<input


       The phonetic  transcription  is  essential  for  some  linguistic  or  speech  recognition
       applications. Depending on the language either rule based or statistical approach is being
       used. g2p-sk implements the rule based approach but in the future it may  be  replaced  by
       statistical one.

       Each  input word consisting of the sequence of graphemes is transcribed in to the sequence
       of phones in the SAMPA coding. If no input  file  is  specified,  the  standard  input  is
       expected.  If  input  file  is used then the output is written in to the file as well. The
       filename is input filename with the extension "_trans.txt".

       The input output code page is ISO 8859-2.  To  use  it  with  different  CP  use  some  CP
       converter  and  pipes.  For example to have input and output in UTF-8 use (for interactive
       use): filterm UTF8-iso2 iso2-UTF8 g2p-sk or (for  batch  processing)  iconv  -f  UTF-8  -t
       ISO_8859-2 | g2p-sk | iconv -f ISO_8859-2 -t UTF-8

       Performance  of  the  phonetic  transcription  depend  on the morphematic segmentation. To
       improve the quality of the morphematic segmentation  is  possible  to  replace  the  small
       version       of       the       simple       morphematic      dictionary      in      the
       /usr/share/g2p_sk/Exceptions/morfemy.ddat with the better one.  The syllabic  segmentation
       is  as  important  as  morphematic one. The syllabic segmentation is provided by sylseg-sk

       The design of the g2p-sk is language dependent. To use it for  another  language  the  all
       rules need to be rewritten.


              Enable color output.

       --dl 1..5
              Set  the debug level. Control the amount of displayed information The debug level 0
              displays nothing. The maximum level 5 displays full debugging report.  The  default
              debug level is 1.

       --help Display a short help text

       --ofile <file_name>
              Write output also in to given file.

              Count and display statistic for each phone


       Use standard input and debug level 3:
              g2p-sk --dl 3

       Process all the from file aaa.txt:
              g2p-sk aaa.txt


       g2p-sk returns a zero if it succeeds to process all the input words
