Soundex is a popular stemming algorithm. Soundex stemming is method used to compute text representations of words, in a way that words that sound very similar are represented by the same soundex stem value.

Soundex and other word phonetics stemming algorithms are often used by search engines to suggest corrections to search words that are possibly misspelled.

The original soundex algorithm assumes English spelling. Usually soundex would not work properly to find words that sound similar in other idioms besides English.

This class provide an alternative implementation of the soundex algorithm that works properly with French words.
