Path Display in Kana to Kanji Conversion

      A program is disclosed by which all paths (conversion
results) are displayed at the same time in multi-phrase Kana-to-Kanji
conversion (MKKC).  By using this program, an operator can select
required path and words easily.

      In MKKC, many paths exist at the conversion time. Old MKKC
programs display one of the paths.  So if the operator wants to
select a required path, he/she has to operate so many key actions.
     example: ('HA' has two meaning in this case.)
         watashi-ha isha-ni iku. <--- displayed   (path 1)
         watashi  haisha-ni iku. <--- requirement (path 2)

      This new program displays all paths for every phrase. The
operator selects one of the paths. It displays all homonyms after
that. The operator selects one of the words. Next it displays the
next phrase path after word selection. And after these operations are
repeated, the required result is obtained easily.
     example:
         Input:  wa ta shi ha i sha ni i ku (conversion)
         Displayed:
             watashi-ha isha-ni iku
             ~~~~~~~          (Different segment words are
                               displayed at the first time)
             wa         --
             wata       --+-- All paths of the first phrase
             watashi    --+   (All candidates are in the MKKC
