Download the PHP package carloswph/linguistics without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package carloswph/linguistics. It is possible to download/install these versions without Composer. Possible dependencies are resolved automatically.


After the download, you have to make one include require_once('vendor/autoload.php');. After that you have to import the classes with use statements.

If you use only one package a project is not needed. But if you use more then one package, without a project it is not possible to import the classes with use statements.

In general, it is recommended to use always a project to download your libraries. In an application normally there is more than one library needed.
Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.

NEW --> Support to NYSIIS encoding What's next? --> Support to Caverphone, Arpabet

This package aims to provide a comprehensive group of new functions and methods to deal with linguistics and phonetics algorithms commonly used for developing or information technology. While PHP already offers functions to encode strings in metaphone and soundex algorithms, some other useful algorithms can't be reached from native functions.

Also, this package brings a dictionary to provide immediate conversion from almost any English word, from text to IPA phonetic symbols. For this moment, just en_US is available, but there are plans to include other languages or dialects eventually.


The easier way of using this package is to require it using Composer - although the package can be simply cloned and used, as long as the namespaces are respected.

composer require carloswph/linguistics


This has been organized in independent classes. The first class Phonetics provide three different methods. The method symbols() converts a string in IPA phonetic symbols. If a longer string is provided, the class splits the string in words, returning the respective symbology to all words, excluding repetitions. Additionally, the class provides a bridge for applying the existent functions of PHP - metaphone() and soundex().

All methods offer three different possibilities of response: TXT, JSON or PHP array. It returns TXT by default, so if you want a different format, you can pass the additional argument in the method. A few examples will make it clearer:

NYSIIS encoding

From v1.1.0, the Phonetics class was reinforced with an additional method which returns The New York State Identification and Intelligence System Phonetic Code, or NYSIIS, to every single word in a sentence (excluding repeated words). The use follows the same logic of the previous static methods.


Three other classes are currently underway:

The next stable version, 1.2.0, should already bring the Caverphone class, at least compatible for encoding the 1.0 version of this algorithm.
