Usage

You the "phonetic_word"-method if you need a fuzzy-search for single words e.g. last-names or product-names.

use voku\helper\Phonetic;

$words = array(
  'Moelleken',
  'Mölleken',
  'Möleken',
  'Moeleken',
  'Moellecken',
  'Möllecken',
  'Mölecken',
);
$phonetic = new Phonetic('de');
foreach ($words as $word) {
  $phonetic->phonetic_word($string); // '6546'
}

You can use the "phonetic_sentence"-method to process sentences.

use voku\helper\Phonetic;

$string = 'Ein Satz mit vielen Wortern';
$phonetic = new Phonetic('de');
$phonetic->phonetic_sentence($string, (bool) false, (false|int) false); 

// [
//   'Ein' => '06', 
//   'Satz' => '8', 
//   'mit' => '62', 
//   'vielen' => '356', 
//   'Wortern' => '37276'
// ]

You can use the "phonetic_matches"-method to search for words in an array of words.

use voku\helper\Phonetic;

$phonetic = new Phonetic('de');

$tests = array(
    'Moelleken',  // '6546',
    'Mölleken',   // '6546',
    'Möleken',    // '6546',
    'Moeleken',   // '6546',
    'oder',       // '027',
    'was',        // '38',
    'Moellecken', // '6546',
    'Möllecken',  // '6546',
    'Mölecken',   // '6546',
);

$phonetic->phonetic_matches('Moelleken', $tests);
    
// [
//   'Moelleken'  => 'Moelleken',
//   'Mölleken'   => 'Moelleken',
//   'Möleken'    => 'Moelleken',
//   'Moeleken'   => 'Moelleken',
//   'Moellecken' => 'Moelleken',
//   'Möllecken'  => 'Moelleken',
//   'Mölecken'   => 'Moelleken',
// ]
