|Abstract:||PHONIX is a phonetic retrieval technique developed for use with the URICA library system. It has been successfully installed at a number of URICA sites in Southern Africa. PHONIX has been found to be particularly useful when applied to personal names, specifically author surnames in the context of a library system. Certain names such as Anton Chekov have been variously transliterated as TSJECHOF, TSJECHOW, TJEKHOW, CHEKHOV, CHEKHOW etc., in the multi-lingual environment of libraries in Southern Africa. PHONIX complements the more conventional information retrieval techniques used by URICA, and the algorithm used is explained as a simple, easy to apply, set of rules. This contribution follows on from a previous paper.|
