CSTR is very pleased to announce the re-release of the Unisyn Lexicon version 1.0 July 2002 The Unisyn lexicon is a master lexicon transcribed in keysymbols, a kind of metaphoneme which allows the encoding of multiple accents of English. The lexicon is accompanied by a number of perl scripts which transform the base lexicon via phonological and allophonic rules, and other symbol changes, to produce output transcriptions in different accents. The rules can be applied to the whole lexicon, to produce an accent-specific lexicon, or to running text. Output can be displayed in keysymbols, SAMPA, or IPA. Full documentation is included in the distribution from http ://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/projects/unisyn/unisyn_release.html The Unisyn lexicon was written by Sue Fitt (sue_(on)_cstr.ed.ac.uk) (Our apologies for the withdrawal of the initial release in January, this was because of legal problems which have now been resolved) -- Dr. Simon King Simon.King_(on)_ed.ac.uk Centre for Speech Technology Research www.cstr.ed.ac.uk For MSc/PhD info, visit www.hcrc.ed.ac.uk/language-at-edinburgh
