Evolution of the MEXBET Alphabet

In this section we show a group of tables that try to show the evolution of the MEXBET alphabet through time. These tables are:

  • Table 1. Allophones of Mexican Spanish in IPA Alphabet
  • Table 2. Phonological System of Mexican Spanish in IPA Alphabet
  • Table 3. Allophones of Mexican Spanish in MEXBET Alphabet
  • Table 4. Phonological System of Mexican Spanish in MEXBET Alphabet
  • Table 5. Equivalences between IPA and MEXBET Alphabets
  • Table 6. Transcription Levels of the MEXBET Alphabet utilized at the DIMEx100 Corpus
  • Table 7. Level T66 of MEXBET utilized at the CIEMPIESS Corpus

You can access to them by clicking on the following link:

Evolution of MEXBET

Notice that: In our previous papers, we refer to the level T29 as T22 and the level T66 as T50 but this is incorrect because the number "22", "29", or "66" etc. must reflect the number of phonemes and allophones considered in that level of MEXBET.

Version of the MEXBET Alphabet utilized at the CIEMPIESS Corpus

In this section we show the two transcription leves utilized for the pronouncing dictionaries of the CIEMPIESS Corpus. These leves are:

  • Table 1. Level T66 of MEXBET utilized at the CIEMPIESS Corpus
  • Table 2. Version of the T29 Level of MEXBET utilized at the CIEMPIESS Corpus

You can access to these tables by clicking on the following link:

Experiment with PFS Algorithm

In this section one can find Python programs to implement the PFS and the PFS-US algorithms.

One can also find a corpus of more than 100 thousand of words with pre-transcription and a set of grouping files that shows a comparison between six different phonetic algorithms: Soundex, NYSIIS, Double Metaphone, Phonix, PFS and PFS-US.
