Abstract

A program is disclosed that new Kana to Kanji Conversion Logic that treats Punctuation marks as Fuzoku-go,not as Bunsetsu. It prevents generating Bunsetsu which includes only Fuzoku-go, so it improves the userbility, and avoids the wrong conversion.

Punctuation Marks are Handled the Same as Fuzoku-Go

      A program is disclosed that new Kana to Kanji Conversion Logic
that treats Punctuation marks as Fuzoku-go,not as Bunsetsu.  It
prevents generating Bunsetsu which includes only Fuzoku-go, so it
improves the userbility, and avoids the wrong conversion.

      Kana to Kanji Conversion Program has two dictionaries.  One is
the Jiritsu-go dictionary and the other is the Fuzoku-go dictionary.
The Fuzoku-go dictionary includes the following information.
  1.  Yomi
  2.  Hinshi
  3.  Cost itself
  4.  Cost between Fuzoku-go

      To treat Punctuation marks as Fuzoku-go, add Punctuation Marks
to Fuzoku-go dictionary and sets (3) and (4) as 0(value,zero).

    For example:
  OMOI(Jiritsu-go J1)+MASU(Fuzoku-go F1)                   ......
(A)
  OMOI(Jiritsu-go J1)+MASU(Fuzoku-go F1)+.(Fuzoku-go F2)   ......
(B)
  Set the cost of J1 as CJ1, F1 as CF1, and F2 as CF2.
  Set the cost between J1 and F1 as CJ1F1 and between F1 and F2
   as CF1F2.

    The cost of Bunsetsu of (A) and (B) are as follows:
  CJ1+CJ1F1+CF1            ......  (C)
  CJ1+CJ1F1+CF1+CF1F2+CF2  ......  (D)

      Because CF1F2=0,CF2=0, then (C) and (D) are the equivalent.
