B.2.2 Languages which use Hànzi Characters

Hànzi Characters are used to write Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and were once used to write Vietnamese. Each hànzi character represents a syllable of a spoken word and also has a meaning. Since there are around 3,000 of them in common usage it is unlikely that Aspell will ever be able to support spell checking languages written using hànzi until full Unicode support is implemented. However, I am not even sure if these languages need spell checking since hànzi characters are generally not entered in directly. Furthermore even if Aspell could spell check hànzi the existing suggestion strategy will not work well at all, and thus a completely new strategy will need to be developed. However, if it is the case that hànzi needs to be spell checked and you know something about the issues involved please fell free to contact me.
