       g2p-sk - phonetic transcription for Slovak


       g2p-sk   [--color]  [--dl  debug  level]  [--help]  [--stats]  [--ofile
       <file_name>] [<input file>]


       The phonetic transcription is essential for some linguistic  or  speech
       recognition  applications.  Depending on the language either rule based
       or statistical approach is being used. g2p-sk implements the rule based
       approach but in the future it may be replaced by statistical one.

       Each  input word consisting of the sequence of graphemes is transcribed
       in to the sequence of phones in the SAMPA coding. If no input  file  is
       specified,  the  standard input is expected. If input file is used then
       the output is written in to the file as well.  The  filename  is  input
       filename with the extension "_trans.txt".

       The  input  output code page is ISO 8859-2. To use it with different CP
       use some CP converter and pipes. For example to have input  and  output
       in  UTF-8 use (for interactive use): filterm UTF8-iso2 iso2-UTF8 g2p-sk
       or (for batch processing) iconv -f UTF-8 -t ISO_8859-2 | g2p-sk | iconv
       -f ISO_8859-2 -t UTF-8

       Performance  of  the  phonetic  transcription depend on the morphematic
       segmentation. To improve the quality of the morphematic segmentation is
       possible  to  replace  the  small  version  of  the  simple morphematic
       dictionary in the  /usr/share/g2p_sk/Exceptions/morfemy.ddat  with  the
       better  one.   The syllabic segmentation is as important as morphematic
       one. The syllabic segmentation is provided by sylseg-sk package.

       The design of the g2p-sk is language dependent. To use it  for  another
       language the all rules need to be rewritten.


              Enable color output.

       --dl 1..5
              Set the debug level. Control the amount of displayed information
              The debug level 0 displays nothing. The maximum level 5 displays
              full debugging report. The default debug level is 1.

       --help Display a short help text

       --ofile <file_name>
              Write output also in to given file.

              Count and display statistic for each phone


       Use standard input and debug level 3:
              g2p-sk --dl 3

       Process all the from file aaa.txt:
              g2p-sk aaa.txt


       g2p-sk returns a zero if it succeeds to process all the input words
