In this paper, we relook at the problem of pronunciation of English words using native phone set. Specifically, we in- vestigate methods of pronouncing English words using Telugu phoneset in the con- text of Telugu Text-to-Speech. We com- pare phone-phone substitution and word- phone mapping for pronunciation of En- glish words using Telugu phones. We are not considering other than native language phoneset in all our experiments. This dif- ferentiates our approach from other works in polyglot speech synthesis.
