Third International Conference on Spoken Language Processing (ICSLP 94)
This paper describes the work on grapheme-to-phoneme conversion for Dutch proper names, carried out in the framework of the ONOMASTICA project. We give some basic statistics of Dutch names, describe the development of a set of letter-to-sound rules optimized for proper names, discuss the main reasons why a specific rule set for this purpose is necessary and finally give results of two tests of the performance of the optimized rule set.
