Well then, I wish I hadn't waited so long to mention this...
I've been working on a new data file to correlate the syllabaries supported in
The file resembles ArabicShapping and Jamo files in format. A version of the
file is being used in development releases of Perl to identify syllabic orders
of a syllable as a character property. The utility of all this is:
1) Corrective: To change the order of a syllable as one would change case
in Roman scripts (used in Emacs 20.1+ and MULE).
2) Linguistic: To identify and manipulate morpheme-phoneme boundaries and
the like when appending affixes to word stems (or other affixes).
3) Transcription: Would aid in transcribing text between syllabaries, for
example Cree<->Cherokee, Hiragana<->Ethiopic. As well as into and out of
A "README" file is provided in the same directory with the "Syllables.txt" file
that will cover the status of the Syllables.txt file. I hope after review and
adjustments if deemed necessary that the Unicode Consortium will find the data
file a worthy companion to the other informative character property files.
