Mary already has secondary stress (in deviation from SAMPA but closer to
IPA, a comma). Please have a look at

You're probably referring to HalfPhoneUnitName and Phone (not
phoneunitname), which are ByteValuedFeatureProcessors (not
ByteStringTranslators). Please see
Not sure at this point, but this change might well burn all bridges of
backward compatibility, which is of course not something to be taken
lightly. In the worst case, no existing Mary voice would work anymore
I agree that it might be desirable to have more than the anticipated
number of phones in a given set (for instance to implement lessemes).
But this must be very well-tested, and in any case an alternative
implementation via a separate feature would give a more compatible result.

This is only possible with an OpenDFKI account.

Yes you did:

I couldn't agree more strongly!

To compile the Mary jars, run ant.
To debug Mary in Eclipse, this may not even be necessary, depending on
your version of Eclipse. (Currently, Ubuntu repos are still stuck with
Galileo, but you can STFW for workarounds.)
In any case, the instructions at http://mary.opendfki.de/wiki/Eclipse
should really be sufficient for Mary 4.x.

For the mavenized trunk, which is the place any experimental things like
what you propose belong (see your own quote below), things are indeed
not yet documented in the Wiki. Hopefully, someone will find the time to
improve this soon!
