Software Details

Title: Phono 4.1
Submitter: Lee Hartman
Description: Phono is a software tool for developing and testing models of regular historical sound change. Version 4.1 for Windows is now ready for beta-testing.

If you wish to test a sound-change model for which you have an ordered set of rules and a set of ancestor words, or if you teach about the operation of regular sound change, Phono may be useful to you.

Phono was developed in conjunction with a model for Spanish, which is bundled with the program.

Phono is intended for free distribution as a research tool, under conditions outlined by the Free Software Foundation (see <www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html>;).
