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.
