hi, is there a 'sounds like' function in Stata?  I have a list of names of individuals of Indian origin, and I am trying to figure out if any of them sound like names in a master list.   

Here is how my data looks:

Individual names
Joshi
Gupta
Tata
Asli

Names in Master:
Tatas
Alsi

I need to be able to figure out the following:
Joshi - No match
Gupta - No match
Tata - Tatas
Asli - Alsi

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

Dalhia
