Can I “shape” the sound of words spoken by Pepper with Phonetic transcription?

I am using Aldebaran/Softbank Pepper with Choreopgraphy software. There are some loan words in my dialogs. When Pepper say this words they often don't sound natural.

e.g. the german word Demenz (eng: dementia) The first e is to long. I imagine some synax like that De[0.5]menz or phonetic transcription [deˈmɛnʦ].

Is this possible?

• @jsotola Is "foreign word" a better translation? I mean words used by experts not "normal" people. – buhtz Mar 8 '18 at 21:04
• "Loan Word" is the proper phrase for what the OP is talking about. It means a word which has come into one language from another language. For example, in French there was a word (among others), "la Girlfriend" which came from English. The French government was not amused. I'm a native US English speaker, and I studied languages in college (40 years ago). – NomadMaker Jun 6 '18 at 16:58
