Hi, Jeroen and everyone,
In the Korean input method that I am implementing, I'm currently using
semicolon ";" as the key to press to manually mark the end of a
(My thinking on this was that whatever key I use should be readily and
easily accessible on the keyboard layout. Semicolon seems easily
accessible, and I was thinking that semicolon is probably not used
very often in Korean text. If one does want to insert a semicolon,
one can still do that of course - for example, in the worst case, just
type a space character and then type the semicolon.)
But I am still thinking of implementing the automatic way of "pulling
out" a previous terminating consonant to become the initial consonant
of a new hangul as Curtis Clark has described it and as is apparently
common in Korean IMEs.
So if I do implement that too, then in theory I'll have the best of
both worlds: Manual way of ending a syllable (where ";" is converted
to HANGUL FILLER) and still have the automated way to allow faster
typing in the general cases.
Well, that's the theory anyway ... any comments?
