Using the right truncated Lotka distribution (11) we obtain the results in the last column of Table 4.

Data The 31 591 word types from the Brown Corpus were automatically separated into graphemes and then paired with their corresponding phonemes with the computer in the following form: i|n|au|g|u||r|a|t|io|n|, /ih n ao g y ah r ey sh ah n/ , i:ih|n:n|au:ao|g:g|u:y ah|r:r|a:ey|t:sh|io:ah|n:n| Computerized analysis is error prone, even with the best commercialized state of the art software.

There are several cases of this sort as can be seen in Table 9 (see p. ). The following are the first ten cases of the automatic graphemic separation and grapheme-phoneme mapping by the computer. The graphemes are separated with “|”, and “||” means there is an ungraphemically represented phoneme; the word pronunciation is enclosed between “/”; and “:” pairs the phoneme with its corresponding grapheme: a|, /ah/, a:ah| a|b||l|er|, /ey b ah l er/, a:ey|b:b ah|l:l|er: er| a|b||le|, /ey b ah l/, a:ey|b:b ah|le:l| a|b|a|ck|, /ah b ae k/, a:ah|b:b|a:ae|ck:k| a|b|a|n|d|o|n|, /ah b ae n d ah n/, a:ah|b:b|a:ae|n:n|d:d|o:ah|n:n| a|b|a|n|d|o|n|ed|, /ah b ae n d ah n d/, a:ah|b:b|a:ae|n:n|d:d|o:ah|n:n|ed:d| a|b|a|n|d|o|n|i|ng|, /ah b ae n d ah n ih ng/, a:ah|b:b|a:ae|n:n|d:d|o:ah|n:n|i:ih|ng:ng| a|b|a|n|d|o|n|m|e|n|t|, /ah b ae n d ah n m ah n t/, a:ah|b:b|a:ae|n:n|d:d|o:ah|n:n|m:m|e:ah|n:n|t:t| a|b|a|t|e|d|, /ah b ey t ih d/, a:ah|b:b|a:ey|t:t|e:ih|d:d| a|b|d|a|ll|ah|, /ae b d ae l ah/, a:ae|b:b|d:d|a:ae|ll:l|ah:ah| All representations of phonemes by graphemes are shown in Table 9 (see p.
