Row matching by sound

With the SOUNDEX function, you can match rows by sound. For example, suppose a phone message was left for a name that sounded like Ms. Brown. You could execute the following query to search for employees that have names that sound like Brown.


The algorithm used by SOUNDEX makes it useful mainly for English-language databases.
