" This neurological phenomenon is known to psychologists as synaesthesia and Feynman's experience of "seeing" the letters in colour was a specific form known today as "grapheme- colour " synaesthesia.
Grapheme -color synesthesia is a peculiar neurological condition in which people involuntarily experience colors when thinking about letters, numbers or words.

In science:

To generate the phonemic representations, we need accurate grapheme-to-phoneme conversion (the part of speech synthesis which converts spelling into phonemic representations).
Meta-Learning for Phonemic Annotation of Corpora
Moreover, this task has to be restarted every time a grapheme-tophoneme convertor is developed for a new language.
Meta-Learning for Phonemic Annotation of Corpora
In this paper, we empirically examine whether these combined classifiers result in substantial accuracy improvements in learning grapheme-to-phoneme conversion.
Meta-Learning for Phonemic Annotation of Corpora
The initial phonological transcription was obtained by a grapheme-to-phoneme converter and was afterwards corrected by hand.
Meta-Learning for Phonemic Annotation of Corpora
Before passing the data through the machine learning program, alignment (Daelemans & van den Bosch, 1996) is performed for the graphemic and phonemic representations of Celex and for those of Fonilex, since the phonemic representation and the spelling of a word often differ in length.
Meta-Learning for Phonemic Annotation of Corpora
Compound phonemes are used whenever graphemes map with more than one phoneme, e.g. the word ’jubileum’ aligns to /j}bIl]}m/ in which the compound phoneme /]/ stands for /ej/.
Meta-Learning for Phonemic Annotation of Corpora
In the cascade and classifier combination experiments, the instances contain both graphemic and phonemic information.
Meta-Learning for Phonemic Annotation of Corpora
In order to obtain a high accuracy grapheme-tophoneme convertor, different approaches were studied.

Richard Sproat.  . A (cid:12)nite-state architecture for tokenization and grapheme-to-phoneme conversion for multilingual text analysis.
Compilation of Weighted Finite-State Transducers from Decision Trees
The classical learning vector is a graphemic sliding window that takes N letters on the left and N letters on the right of the letter being transcribed.
Letter to Sound Rules for Accented Lexicon Compression
The reason is that defining an open/closed syllable for example is straightforward with the right phonemic context, and tedious with graphemes.
