Abstract:     Phonetic Chinese (Pinyin and BPMF) is entered into a computer system and accurately converted into the Hanzi form. The system has a novel keyboard with diacritic keys (and corresponding ASCII coding) that permit the user to annotate each entered phonetic text syllable with a diacritic that indicates the tone of the syllable. A process executing on the system determines that a syllable has been entered when a diacritic (or delimiter) key is struck. An entered phonetic syllable is then compared to a list of acceptable phonetic syllables and abbreviations. If the entered syllable is on the list, the correctly spelled and accented syllable is stored in memory and displayed on a phonetic portion of a graphical display. The process continues for succeeding syllables until a delimiter is entered. Upon encountering a delimiter, the word string (defined as the string of characters between two delimiters) is analyzed using morphological and syntactical processes and/or a statistical language model to unambiguously determine the proper Hanzi characters that represent the word(s) in the word string. The unique Hanzi translation is stored in memory and displayed on a Hanzi portion of the graphical interface.

Parent Case:     This is a divisional application of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 08/515,547 to Chen, filed on Aug. 16, 1994.

Family: None

First Claim:
Show all 11 claims
I claim:     1. A method where a word string is processed by a morphology process comprising the steps of:
  • removing one or more affixes from the word string to create a root, the removed affix being one of the affixes on an affix list;
  • comparing the root to one or more of the words in a vocabulary to find a match, the vocabulary having a plurality of words, each with one or more Hanzi translations, the word in the vocabulary matching the root being the root match; and
  • storing in the computer memory the Hanzi translation of the root match.
