There is increasing concern about English-Korean (E-K) transliteration recently. In the previous works, direct converting methods from English alphabets to Korean alphabets were a main research topic. In this paper, we present an E-K transliteration model using pronunciation and contextual rules. Unlike the previous works, our method uses phonetic information such as phoneme and its context. We also use word formation information such as English words of Greek origin. With them, our method shows significant performance increase about 31% in word accuracy.
