This paper presents a case study in eva]usting s case-based system. It describes the evaluation of Anapron, s system that pronounces names by a combination of rulebased and case-based reasoning. Three sets of experiments were run on Anapron: s set of exploratory measurements to profile the system’s operation; a comparison between Anapron and other name-pronunciation systems; and a set of studies that modified various parts of the system to isolate the contribution of each. Lessons learned from these experiments for CBR evaluation methodology and for CBR theory are discussed.
