All TTS software pronounce words based on assumptions about the language and context of the sentence. The modern solution would be to pass meta information about the sentence to the TTS. One such solution is part of speech tagging (POS).

Since the origins of espeak NG are in 1995, these modern solutions are not used. Instead, all choices are rule based. It would be great to give user more configuration options to choose the preferred behavior. That is a work in progress with LoadVoice() and LoadConfig() functions. Unfortunately the progress is slow because the original code wasn't designed to support all these languages and situations.

Currently, the only option for the user is to edit the config files and rebuild the code. That's probably too difficult for most users.
