Allow only one noun root OR only one verb root in each word. If that finds nothing:-<br>2) Strict order of morphemes. Allow more than one noun and/or verb roots in the word, to allow for compounds which are not in the dictionary. If that finds nothing:-<br>3) Allow any Klingon morphemes and any other single characters jumbled in any order, to allow for partially-translatable mistyping etc and words such as {ChicagoDaq}. Mark the result with a '#' sign to show that it is a rough translatiion.<br><br>I have now put all the new and old Klingon words in its dictionary :: what sort of copyright problem does that cause?, that may prevent me from releasing this software for public access?<br><br>It replaces some Unicode quote-type characters by {'}, but any other Unicode character outside the old ASCII 256 charecters are replaced with {?}.<br></blockquote></blockquote><br><p></p>
