I've been working with SIL PC-Kimmo and been able to make some interestin=
things and surely it could work for sound changes... the problem is defin=
rules but PCKimmo is distribuited with helping tools that avoid programin=
finite state machine tables.
I've managed to make a script for PCKimmo which can convert any word writ=
Spanish into phonetic transcription, managing stress paterns, consonant c=
of front vowels, "gu" paterns meaning /gu/, /Gu/, /gw/, /Gw/, /g/ or /G/,=
PCKimmo can be found at http://www.sil.org/pckimmo/
