Title (EN) SYSTEM FOR SELECTING GRAPHIC CHARACTERS PHONETICALLY
(FR) SYSTEME DE SELECTION PHONETIQUE DE CARACTERES GRAPHIQUES.
Abstract:
(EN) Graphic symbols such as Chinese ideograms (51) or their informational equivalents, are stored at coded addresses in a memory (113) and are identified and retrieved by signals (108, 112) representing first and second linguistic characteristics. One of the linguistic characteristics is preferably one style of pronunciation of the desired symbol. The other linguistic characteristic may be a second style of pronunciation, especially in the retrieval of ideograms in printing the Japanese language in which the two styles are "kun" and "on" styles of Japanese pronunciation (65). The second characteristic can be a related ideogram or phonetic linguistic characteristic. A graphic symbol reproducer (150), such as a typewriter, printer, facsimile machine, cathode ray terminal, phototypesetter, teletype machine or other encoding device which is simple and rapid to operate is provided by the invention.
(FR) Des symboles graphiques tels que les ideogrammes chinois (51) ou leurs equivalents informatiques, sont emmagasines a des adresses codees dans une memoire (113) et sont identifies et extraits par des signaux (108, 112) des premiere et seconde caracteristiques linguistiques. Une de ces caracteristiques linguistiques est, de preference, un style de prononciation du symbole voulu. L"autre caracteristique linguistique peut etre un second style de prononciation, specialement dans l"extraction d0ideogrammes dans l"impression de la langue japonaise ou les deux styles sont les styles "kun" et "on" de la prononciation japonaise (65). La seconde caracteristique peut etre un ideogramme correspondant ou une caracteristique linguistique phonetique. Un reproducteur de symboles graphiques (150), telle qu"une machine a ecrire, une imprimante, une machine a fac-simile, un terminal a rayons cathodiques, une photocomposeuse, une machine a tele impression ou tout autre dispositif d"encodage dont le fonctionnement est simple et rapide est prevu par l"invention.
