Abstract

This paper includes a description of 3 affiliated oriental languages: Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. It includes a description of the origins of these 3 languages and the inter-relationship among them. Drawn from the viewpoints of several experienced researchers in the field of OCR (Optical Character Recognition) and computational linguistics, it attempts to bring out the intriguing aspects of these 3 ideographic languages, including the formation and composition of pictograms, special features, learning, understanding, contextual information, and recognition of characters and words, and their relations to poetic expressions and pattern recognition techniques. Numerous references are given and comments on future trends are also presented.
