runBASwebservice_pho2sylCanonical: Adds syllabified word labels to a word level that already contains canonical pronunciations.


This function calls the webservice Pho2Syl to add syllabified canonical pronunciation labels to a word level that already contains unsyllabified canonical pronunciation labels (as can be derived using runBASwebservice_g2pForPronunciation). This function requires an internet connection.


runBASwebservice_pho2sylCanonical(handle, canoAttributeDefinitionName, language,
  canoSylAttributeDefinitionName = "KAS", params = list(), patience = 0,
  resume = FALSE, verbose = TRUE)



emuDB handle


name of the attribute (not level!) containing a canonical pronunciation of the words.


language(s) to be used. If you pass a single string (e.g. "deu-DE"), this language will be used for all bundles. Alternatively, you can select the language for every bundle individually. To do so, you must pass a data frame with the columns session, bundle, language. This data frame must contain one row for every bundle in your emuDB. Up-to-date lists of the languages accepted by all webservices can be found here: https://clarin.phonetik.uni-muenchen.de/BASWebServices/services/help


attribute name for syllabified canonical pronunciations of words


named list of parameters to be passed on to the webservice. It is your own responsibility to ensure that these parameters are compatible with the webservice API (see https://clarin.phonetik.uni-muenchen.de/BASWebServices/services/help). Some options accepted by the API (e.g. output format) cannot be set when calling a webservice from within emuR, and will be overridden.


If a web service call fails, it is repeated a further n times, with n being the value of patience. Must be set to a value between 0 and 3.


If a previous call to this function has failed (and you think you have fixed the issue that caused the error), you can set resume=TRUE to recover any progress made up to that point. This will only work if your R temporary directory has not been deleted or emptied in the meantime.
