About Me

My name is Doug Blumeyer and I live in San Francisco.

This is a photo of me in which my expression is serious, yet I am smiling ever so slightly, suggesting contentedness or perhaps acceptance or at least longing, and also I am unkempt. Thanks Ben for the photo 🙂

I’m mostly interested in dinosaurs, absurdity, math, transhumanism, and okonomiyaki.

This page is like 10 years old now.

I have my BA in Film & Media Studies from Stanford with a concentration in Writing, Criticism & Practice. I also studied Symbolic Systems, which is a Stanford exclusive program interdisciplinary between computer science, linguistics, philosophy, and psychology, and was a research assistant and visual designer at the Virtual Human Interaction Lab.

    Doug is a certified phenom and prodigy. Probably the only guy I’ve ever known that could literally do anything he ever wants to do.

    Hey Doug!
    Just sent you a message over FB, but think it might have ended up in your “other” folder.
    Is there another way of messaging you?

  • Dear Doug,

    I have seen your frequency list on https://cmloegcmluin.wordpress.com/2012/11/10/relative-frequencies-of-english-phonemes/. As of course you know, many sounds in the English language may be represented in different ways. I actually am searching a letter-sound-frequency list. For instance, the /ai/-sound me be represented as ‘igh’ (in ‘light’ and ‘high’), as ‘i-e’ (in ‘bike’ and ‘time’), as ‘ie’ (in ‘pie’ and ‘tie’), as ‘i’ (in ‘behind’ and ‘kind’).
    That is why I am searching a frequency list for ‘igh’-/ai/, ‘i-e’-/ai’, and so on, not just for /ai/ but for all sounds as they as represented in different ways.
    Could you help me further? If you are interested, I shall write you why I would like to know this.

    Many thanks in advance.

      Thank you so much for your interest in my work on this topic.

      Unfortunately I am not aware of a pronunciation dictionary which breaks down to the phone level, rather than stopping at the phoneme level (like the CMU one I used for this project does). If you find one, let me know!

      Sorry I could not be of more help.
