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 at 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)
