Actually, I do not willing to continue to discuss on this points. 

I have already talked in my another mail. I had done my effort to strong objection to this proposal preparation stage,

Because of these problem. But today, I have to accept this Encoding and work on it.

We cannot re-design the Encoding, it will lead another one or decade for Mongolian.

My effort is not on how to redesign the Encoding, but on how to optimize it on all kind of utilization.

We can work around it and do more intelligent way to solve this problem. 

But we need more times to get these problem solved by working around solution.

Our solution on it will be folding all of these possibility as Richard Wordingham suggested.

What it is mean, we will handle the O and U, OE and UE as the same code in reality, 

it is mean, we will omit one of each pair in the real word handling, and look them as same,

even they are exist on the code table and exist in the context.

 

(U1820+U182A+1823) - wrong

 

But I suggest you google it on the internet. There is a lot hit on it means, the writer did not think it is the wrong word.

Can we discuss the Mongolian GA and QA in different threads ?,

Our teams intention is not to increase the variant count, but decrease the variant count.

It will helpful to decrease possibilities of the problematic indistinct encoding which we discussed in the beginning of this mail.

 

I will come back to GA and QA in another threads.

 

Thanks and Best Regards,

Jirimutu,

 

I am responding below in yellow.

Thank you for not giving me 100 words as I asked for J.

Sorry, I am not so sympathetic about the spelling problems.

Every school lad in every country has to learn to spell correctly.

While it is true that it takes some work to check a Mongolian document created in digital form, the first step is to fix what is going through the pupil’s mind.

I had to learn the rules of when to place the I before the E and vice versa.

Every German boy has to learn his declensions.

The laws of vowel harmony are very strict and very consistent – there is breakage, but rarely.

Mongol boys and girls must learn the rules of vowel harmony – there is no way of getting around it.

Kids are smart and they will learn these things. How Chinese kids can learn a 10,000 character set by age 15 is harder for me to fathom!

I don’t find it hard to see which words are correct and which are incorrect – but I do find it hard to tell which letter is actually lurking behind the black ink.

Smart keyboards and other utilities will help that over time.

 

 

 

But let’s come back to our initial objective.

We have a difficult script.

We have an encoding that is has problems, but is work-able. I would say admirable given the state of the digital world that it came from.

Many great people have worked on it … including you!

We have some differences in how we as font developers have implemented things.

Some decisions have been made to optimize for efficiency. Some for linguistic soundness.

Our task is not to re-design the whole – but to fix what is broken. And get back to using it.

Our task at hand – our first task is to - as a unified front, come up with a set of Mongolian code-points mapped to positions isolate, initial, medial, final which are again mapped to variations selectors none, first, second and third and hopefully not fourth.

 

Can we deal with the medial GA position?

Do we have overload there?

Can we handle all of the variants with only 4 slots? With the final dotted form still at the medial slot instead of the final?

I count five variants with the final dotted form at the medial. We have room for four by my count.

I am talking about the printed word to code point mapping possibility. 

That is mean the word displayed on the screen or printed on the paper, It is maybe stored in different encoding in Unicode (I am calling it spelling).

Maybe you already know what I am talking. Let me list 10 daily used word here with possibility.

If you really need 100 words, I will prepare for you from dictionary's particular page.

 

ᠠᠪᠤ ( father) - (U1820+U182A+1824), correct

(U1820+U182A+1823) - wrong

, maybe there are (U1820+U182A+1825), - wrong

(U1820+U182A+1826) - wrong

 

ᠡᠵᠢ ( mother ) - (U1821+U1835+1822), - correct

(U1821+U1835+1836) - wrong

 

ᠠᠬ᠎ᠠ ( brother) - (U1820+182C+180E+1820), - correct 

(U1820+182C+180D+180E+1820), 

Even (U1820+182C+180E+1821), 

(U1820+182C+180D+180E+1821) 

 

ᠳᠡᠭᠦᠦ (sister) - (U1833+U1821+U182D+U1826+U1826), - correct

(U1833+U1821+U182D+U1825+U1825), - wrong

(U1833+U1821+U182D+U185+U1826), - wrong

(U1832+U1821+U182D+U1825+U1825), - wrong

(U1832+U1821+U182D+U185+U1826). - wrong

I have not include the final U1823, U1824 possibility and the U1820 possibility for this word.

Etc. etc.

 

ᠬᠦᠦ (son) - (U182C+U1826+U1826), 

(U182C+U1825+U1826), 

(U182C+U1826+U1825), 

(U182C+U1825+U1825), 

(U182D+U1826+U1826), 

(U182D+U1825+U1826), 

(U182D+U1826+U1825), 

(U182D+U1825+U1825).

 

ᠦᠬᠢᠨ (daughter) - (U1826+U182C+U1822+U1828), 

(U1825+U182C+U1822+U1828), 

(U1826+U182D+U1822+U1828), 

(U1825+U182D+U1822+U1828). 

I have not included the final N's U1820 and U1821 posibility.

 

ᠮᠢᠨᠤ ( my ) - (U182E+U1822+U1828+U1824), 

(U182E+U1822+U1828+U1823), 

(U182E+U1822+U1828+U1825), 

(U182E+U1822+U1828+U1826) 

 

ᠲᠠᠨᠠᠢ ( his ) - (U1832+U1820+U1828+U1820+U1822), 

(U1832+U1821+U1828+U1821+U1822), 

(U1833+U1820+U1828+U1820+U1822), 

(U1833+U1821+U1828+U1821+U1822).

I have not include the wrong spelled possibility. The first two is all correct spelling, and have different meanings. 

 

ᠭᠡᠷ ( home ) - (U182D+U1821+U1837), (U182C+U1821+U1837) 

ᠨᠤᠳᠤᠭ ( hometown ) - (U1828+U1824+U1833+U1824+U182D), 

(U1828+U1824+U1833+U1823+U182D), 

(U1828+U1823+U1833+U1824+U182D), 

(U1828+U1823+U1833+U1823+U182D), 

(U1828+U1824+U1832+U1824+U182D), 

(U1828+U1824+U1832+U1823+U182D), 

(U1828+U1823+U1832+U1824+U182D), 

(U1828+U1823+U1832+U1823+U182D)

 

I think the members who could not read Mongolian all have been puzzled by this.

In the list, Even the Mongolian people will confuse following word's correct spelling or encoding. 

ᠳᠡᠭᠦᠦ

ᠦᠬᠢᠨ

ᠮᠢᠨᠤ

ᠲᠠᠨᠠᠢ

ᠨᠤᠳᠤᠭ

 

We need dictionary to confirm which is OE or UE, U or UE etc., when we need to encode or spell it correctly.
