Quoting Paul Bennett <paul-bennett@...>:
I have to take this moment to mention my perl module Lingua::Phonology again
development hasn't yet reached a state where it's of much use to a non-
technical user, it'll eventually do everything that the previously mentioned
program does and more.
That being said, Etymo gets a thumbs-up from me as it contains a lot of
features that none of the other extant sound-changers do. Sounds.exe and
phono.exe are both hopelessly limited. It even does a few things that I hadn't
thought of yet, which I might steal for Lingua::Phonology.
