This paper is concerned with the enhancement of phonological representations
for the purposes of multilingual ubiquitous speech technology applications.
Such applications would be multilingual, in the sense that the techniques
they employ for acquiring and representing phonological information
are generic in form and can therefore be used with any language, and
ubiquitous meaning that the framework in which they are developed and
applied is portable and readily accessible anywhere. Three XML based
mechanisms are described with a view to facilitating the goal of multilingual
ubiquitous speech technology: Multilingual time maps, which integrate
linguistic data storage and finite state technology with XML's portability;
LeXMLicon, an XML based syllable lexicon generator; and PROMPT, a phonological resource organiser for mapping data from one format to another.
