I've been working with the dictionary list in eSpeak and I would like to use the following flags but I don't understand how to use them. How does eSpeak know whether a word is a verb, or a noun, or past tense etc.?
$verb Use this pronunciation if it's a verb.
$noun Use this pronunciation if it's a noun.
$past Use this pronunciation if it's past tense.
$verbf The following word is probably is a verb.
$verbsf The following word is probably is a if it has an "s" suffix.
$nounf The following word is probably not a verb.
$pastf The following word is probably past tense.
$verbextend Extend the influence of $verbf and $verbsf.
Is there any detailed documentation or tutorials on how to use these flags in the lang_list file?
I've read the document on the eSpeak page, but that has limited information.
