I've seen this a long time ago, I was interested with it for a few minutes and left it there. I am bored now, went there, took a look at some of the sources, and decided to make a Metaphone DLL. Fail intro.

Okay, Lawrence Phillips' Metaphone is an algorithm that (should) index words by their English pronunciation. It is (as people say) more accurate then Soundex, which I find hard to believe. Honestly, I have no use for it, except for the fact that I find it entertaining. If you know how to read you will know why.

I may add Double Metaphone to it later.
