Let’s understands this module step-by-step:



1. Import this module and use convert() method to convert a string into phonetics.

Syntax: eng_to_ipa.convert(str)

Python3




import eng_to_ipa as p
  
  
p.convert("Hello Geeks")

'hɛˈloʊ giks'

2. Using ipa_list() instead of convert() it returns the list of each word as a list of all its possible transcriptions.

Syntax: eng_to_ipa.ipa_list(str)



Parameter:

  • str: the text to be converted

Return: list of all its possible transcriptions.

Python3




p.ipa_list("Yes i am geeks, How are you")

Output:

[[‘jɛs’], [‘aɪ’], [‘eɪɛm’, ‘æm’], [‘giks,’], [‘haʊ’], [‘ɑr’, ‘ər’], [‘ju’]]

3. The get_rhymes() methods return a list of rhymes for a word or set of words.

Syntax: eng_to_ipa.get_rhymes(str)

Parameter:

  • str: the text to be rhymed

Returns: list of rhymes for a word or set of words.

Python3




p.get_rhymes("Geeks")

 'bespeaks',
 'boutiques',
 'cheeks',
 "creek's",
