-== Welcome ==
-
-Welcome to your wiki! This is the default page we've installed for your convenience. Go ahead and edit it.
-
-=== Wiki features ===
-
-This wiki uses the [[http://www.wikicreole.org/|Creole]] syntax, and is fully compatible with the 1.0 specification.
-
-The wiki itself is actually a hg repository, which means you can clone it, edit it locally/offline, add images or any other file type, and push it back to us. It will be live immediately.
-
-Go ahead and try:
-
-{{{
-$ hg clone http://bitbucket.org/lars512/gpalign-py/wiki/
-}}}
-
-Wiki pages are normal files, with the .wiki extension. You can edit them locally, as well as creating new ones.
-
-=== Syntax highlighting ===
-
-You can also highlight snippets of text, we use the excellent [[http://www.pygments.org/|Pygments]] library.
-
-Here's an example of some Python code:
-
-{{{
-#!python
-
-def wiki_rocks(text):
-	formatter = lambda t: "funky"+t
-	return formatter(text)
-}}}
-
-You can check out the source of this page to see how that's done, and make sure to bookmark [[http://pygments.org/docs/lexers/|the vast library of Pygment lexers]], we accept the 'short name' or the 'mimetype' of anything in there.

-Have fun!
+== Unsupervised grapheme-phoneme aligner ==
+
+=== Overview ===
+
+This codebase describes a grapheme-phoneme alignment system for Japanese based on the paper:
+
+Yencken, Lars and Baldwin, Timothy: "Efficient grapheme-phoneme alignment for Japanese", in //Proceedings of ALTW 2005//, Sydney, Australia, pp. 143-151 (2005)
+
+It's currently designed to align Japanese input pairs in two main formats, simple and EDICT. Since it is unsupervised, it needs either a large input dataset or previously accumulated counts from such a set in order to achieve high alignment accuracy.
+
+More soon... until then, please [[mailto:lljy@csse.unimelb.edu.au|contact me]] or read the original paper, available at [[http://www.csse.unimelb.edu.au/~lljy/|my homepage]].
