Subject [jira] Created: (CODEC-57) Metaphone.metaphone(String) returns an empty string when passed the word "why".

Metaphone.metaphone(String) returns an empty string when passed the word "why".
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CODEC-57
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CODEC-57
             Project: Commons Codec
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.3
         Environment: Commons-codec built from source using jdk 1.4.2.
OS: Windows XP
Java Build: 1.4.2
            Reporter: Adam Wilmore


An empty string is returned from the Metaphone.metaphone(String) method when passed the value
"why". Variations on the value, such as "wwwhy" and "wwhhhy" also return empty strings.

This appears to be an issue since other implementations of the metaphone algorithm, namely
the PHP version, returns "H" when passed the value "why".
