I do notice a bug that another has also identified.

Up is translated as "yoopee". I'm not that good with the alphabet and linguistics. Is that a literal pronunciation of the two letters U. P.?

It is strange that "upon" actually gets it right but "up on" does not:

upon 𐐲𐐹𐐪𐑌 up on 𐐷𐐭𐐹𐐨 𐐪𐑌

This is a great site and am very interested in the inner workings. How do you do the translation? Do you have a data base of words (giant lookup table) or do you make a translation from English to sound equivalents and then from sound equivalents to Deseret? on matches. upon has correct rendering for up but up does not (has yoopee).

    Seems like the issue may be that the dictionary it is using (Moby Pronunciator II) has two entries: UP and up. The first is sounded U.P. and the second as up. Perhaps we need to distinguish based on the case (UP != Up = up)?
