## Abstract

Disclosed herein is a KANA to KANJI conversion logic that treats HIRAGANA and Numeric which are given as YOMI as one pair of YOMI, not as two individual components of YOMI. That is to say, the conversion logic interprets given HIRAGANA and Numeric together as one YOMI and converts them to one SEISHO which means a correct result of conversion.

Matrix Conversion for Kana To Kanji Conversion

Disclosed herein is a KANA to KANJI conversion logic that
treats HIRAGANA and Numeric which are given as YOMI as one pair of
YOMI, not as two individual components of YOMI. That is to say, the
conversion logic interprets given HIRAGANA and Numeric together as
one YOMI and converts them to one SEISHO which means a correct result
of conversion.

This new conversion logic is effective for "BUSHU/KAKUSUU"
conversion, and it is always useful when the condition of YOMI is a
pair of HIRAGANA and Numeric.

The prior-art conversion logic cannot handle a YOMI that
consists of more than two components.  That is to say,
1.   To achieve a SEISHO, only one condition is effective.
2.   A YOMI can give only one condition; it never can give more
than two.
3.   There is no way to give two conditions at the same time
without a complex operation.
Example 1 is as follows:

"KI(= Japanese expression of "wood")", which is SEISHO of KANJI
character, is given by " KI(HIRAGANA YOMI) " or "4458(JIS code
input)". But they should not be effective together to get the above
SEISHO.
Example 2 is as follows:

"TOKYO23KU", which is a YOMI, consists of "TOKYO", "23" and
"KU", and they are all independent elements.  "TOKYO" and "23" cannot
express one meaning together.

Usually, the words are converted easily by giving YOMI of
HIRAGANA.  But when a user does not...
