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