I have a question to the people from Greece.
Does anybody know if the Gr. kokkalo 'bone' has the
meanings 'ankle' or 'knucklebone' in some Greek
dialects? 
I will be very grateful having any answer!

Subject: automatic pronunciation generator

Does anyone know of software that generates (English) 
phonetic transcriptions for novel words? I know the best 
way to get phonetic interpretations of text is to use 
something like the CMU pronouncing dictionary; I'm looking 
for some sort of phonetic-rule-based program which can 
interpret proper names, etc. that aren't findable in 
dictionaries.

I'll post a summary of any responses; thanks for your help -
