AbstractIn text-to-speech generating arrangements, text is analyzed to determine the language source of words therein by successively selecting letter sequences of each word in the text. At least one signal representative of the probability that the text word corresponds to a particular language source is generated responsive to the selected letter sequences and a language source is selected for converting the text work to a phonetic string responsive to the probability representative signals.
