TECH: Sound Change program

From:Paul Bennett <paul-bennett@...>

As an assignment for a programming course I'm taking, I'm building a
program to read a sound change list and a corpus, and output the corpus as
modified by the sound changes.

Once it's written, I'm going to release the source to this list, and maybe
other places.

What features would you most like to see in your ideal sound change

Right now, I'm thinking the sound change list will be applied in the order
as found in the file, with entries in the familiar format:

 from > to / environment

such as:

d > t / _ #

In addition I will recognise labels like:


to mark the (idealised) year a set of sound changes takes place. There
will be a slider to set the output to any such labelled year.

The corpus, sound changes, and output will be UTF-8 files.

All other ideas appreciated, for any facet of the design.
