infer a few likely possibilities for unseen words using known words with
the longest common prefix, using a trie for internal representation.
-== 2. Usage ==
+== 2. Installation ==
-To avoid licensing headaches, and because the data file is quite big, no
-pronunciation data is included, you have to generate it yourself. See section 3.
+You need a working Python3 environment to run frhyme.
-Once you have pronunciation data ready in frhyme.json, you can either run
-frhyme.py [NBEST], giving one word per line in stdin and getting the NBEST top
-pronunciations on stdout (default is 5), or you can import it in a Python file
-and call frhyme.lookup(word, NBEST) which returns the NBEST top pronunciations
-(default is 5).
+You can install frhyme directly with pip by doing:
-The pronunciations returned are annotated with a confidence score (the number of
-occurrences in the training data). They should be sensible up to the longest
-prefix occurring in the training data, but may be prefixed by garbage.
+ pip3 install frhyme
-== 3. Training ==
+You can also manually clone the project repository and use frhyme
+directly from there, but you must then follow the instructions in
+Section 4 below to prepare the file frhyme.json for frhyme. (By
+contrast, if you install frhyme using pip, a file frhyme.json is
+provided, which has been trained using the Lexique database:
-First, make sure that you have a working python3 installation and that you have
-unzip (Debian packages: python3, unzip).
+== 3. Usage ==
-The data used by frhyme.py is loaded at runtime from the fryme.json file which
-should be trained from a pronunciation database. The recommended way to do so is
-to use a tweaked Lexique <http://lexique.org> along with a provided bugfix file,

+you have unzip (Debian packages: python3, unzip).
+The data used by frhyme.py is loaded at runtime from the frhyme.json

+recommended way to do so is to use Lexique <http://lexique.org> with
+some tweaks and some modifications according to provided files. The way
+to do this is as follows:
lexique/lexique_retrieve.sh > lexique.txt
./make.sh NPHON lexique.txt additions > ../frhyme/frhyme.json
-where NPHON is the number of trailing phonemes to keep (suggested value: 4).
-Beware, this may take up several hundred megabytes of RAM. The resulting file
-should be accurate on the French words of Lexique, and will return
-pronunciations in a variant of X-SAMPA which ensures that each phoneme is mapped
-to exactly one ASCII character: the substitutions are "A~" => "#", "O~" => "$",
-"E~" => ")", "9~" => "(".
