Abstract

Disclosed is a Japanese word processing system which is provided with a mechanism for automatically keeping association between user-defined Gaijis (one or more Kanji characters that are not in the standard Kanji character set) and user-assigned Yomis (phonetic expression) through storing each of the Yomi's both in a User Dictionary and in a Gaiji Font File. In the processing of the Japanese written language, there are times when an operator wants to register a Yomi for a Gaiji after having invoked the Dictionary Register Function. Many of the Japanese word processing systems support such operation.

Gaiji Processing Mechanism Using Yomi

Disclosed is a Japanese word processing system which is provided with a mechanism for automatically keeping association between user-defined Gaijis (one or more Kanji characters that are not in the standard Kanji character set) and user-assigned Yomis (phonetic expression) through storing each of the Yomi's both in a User Dictionary and in a Gaiji Font File. In the processing of the Japanese written language, there are times when an operator wants to register a Yomi for a Gaiji after having invoked the Dictionary Register Function. Many of the Japanese word processing systems support such operation. In case of modifying or deleting one of the Gaijis whose Yomis are registered, however, the prior systems require the operator to recall the Yomi associated with the Gaiji and then modify or delete it through the Dictionary Update Function. This prior approach cannot avoid tedious management of Yomis especially when the number of Gaijis is increased, since it cannot prevent a disparity between a given Yomi and the associated Gaiji (e.g., a Yomi having the associated Gaiji deleted) from being generated. According to the present system, the operator is allowed to assign a given Yomi for a new Gaiji at the Gaiji creation time. If the Yomi is so assigned, the present system will store the Yomi both in the User Dictionary and in the Gaiji Font File, thereby enabling the retention of association between the Gaiji and the Yomi without further operator intervention. The present system is schematically shown in the drawing. As...
