Alignment of Phonetic Sequences Using the 'ALINE' Algorithm.

Functions are provided to calculate the 'ALINE' Distance between words as per (Kondrak 2000) and (Downey, Hallmark, Cox, Norquest, & Lansing, 2008, ). The score is based on phonetic features represented using the Unicode-compliant International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). Parameterized features weights are used to determine the optimal alignment and functions are provided to estimate optimum values using a genetic algorithm and supervised learning. See (Downey, Sun, and Norquest 2017, .
