Input FieldThe input field may contain any Czech text to be processed.
Analysis TypeIt specifies whether euphony will be carried out in addition to phonetic transcription. Euphony is quantified on the basis of the method of Gabriel Altmann, except for the fact that the euphonic coefficient of lines will be counted as the sum of nonzero coefficients of their sounds, not as its average (cf. Plecháč–Říha 2014). Default: euphony analysis
Output FormatThe result may be displayed in the application, downloaded in the xml format or as a plain text. Default: application
TranscriptionThe system which will be used for transcription:
- IPA – International Phonetic Alphabet
- CPT – Czech Phonetic Transcription
- PhoEBE – the Corpus of Czech Verse transcription system
Corpus of ReferenceThe corpus which will provide sound frequencies for euphony analysis:
- the Corpus of Czech Verse
- SYN-BEL – the fiction subcorpus of the Institute of the Czech National Corpus
- Phonological Text Corpus
- the Corpus of Czech Verse subcorpora containing books published in 1800–1825, 1825–1850, 1850–1875, 1875–1900
Default: the Corpus of Czech Verse
Significance LevelEuphony test significance level. Default: 0.05
Minimal FrequencyThe number of times a sound must appear in a line to be tested on euphony.
Sound EquivalenceBy clicking on the [+] button, it is possible to specify which sounds are to be considered identical in the euphony analysis. E.g., if [a: = a] is stated, the word "mávávala" [ma:va:vala] will be considered to contain 4 identical vowels. In the default state, all long and short vowels are taken as identical, the same as syllabic and non-syllabic consonants, etc.
Show Results in Application
By choosing the euphony analysis option, you will obtain the total euphonic coefficient of the input text (E), individual lines of the input text, their phonetic transciptions in the preselected system, their individual euphonic coefficients (e), and euphonic coefficients of their individual sounds. The first chart demonstrates sums of the euphonic coefficients of individual sounds throughout the whole text. The second chart shows relative frequencies of individual sounds in the input text and compares them to the frequencies in the corpus of reference. At the bottom of the page, there is a histogram of euphonic coefficients of individual CCV poems – i.e., the number of poems matching the euphonic coefficient within the predefined range (it takes into account the preselected significance level and minimal frequency, the corpus of reference and the default sound equivalence settings). The highlighted column matches the value obtained in the input test. Further, the CCV author is indicated whose average euphonic coefficient is the closest to the one of the input text. The transcription system used in the result may be changed with assistance of the buttons at the top of the page.
If phonetic transcription only is the selected option, the transcription in the selected system is displayed.
XMLThe file with the following structure:
Plain TextThe UTF-8-encoded text file containing the phonetic transcription of the input text. If euphony analysis is the selected option, the first line contains the total euphonic coefficient of the text.
