Lingua::JA::Gairaigo::Fuzzy - variant spellings of foreign words in Japanese
use Lingua::JA::Gairaigo::Fuzzy 'same_gairaigo'; my $same = same_gairaigo ('メインフレーム', 'メーンフレーム');
Given two Japanese gairaigo words, guess whether they are the same word.
my $same = same_gairaigo ('メイン', 'メーン');
This guesses whether the two words are the same. It catches things like addition and removal of "ー", "・", "ッ", as well as the mixing of elements such as "ティ", "テー", "テイ", and "テ". If the two words appear to be the same, it returns a true value. If the two words appear not to be the same, it returns a false value.
Because this module is intended to deal with natural language, it does not guarantee to find a correct answer. Bug reports containing test cases are very much appreciated.
