I was able to find the answers myself with a few hours of probing and studying.
To anyone interested in the same question I will include a few links and a general explanation on how it works.
Answer: Revolves around understanding the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet). You can understand it with tutorial videos or like myself, just reading it. Pretty straightforward, it plays on sounds made when creating a word. And then apply the symbol matching the correct/similar sound made to create the new word. Ex:
- Breaking down the word(s): Mans Milias, the sounds are as follows; "Ma-nz.ME.Y-Ais"
- Phonetically, the symbols matching these sets of sounds are as follows; "mɑ:nz.mi:.aaɪs"
- When you look at the graphs/charts/examples it becomes clearer and easier to grasp. Of course, there are also a few small other, details to consider when getting into this program for the first time also.
Concluding thoughts, again, I'm a complete noob when it comes to AWS Polly SSML, and its good just to read and understand the program more. Links for my success are included below.
