Somali

Kevin Scannell-2
Hello all,

A quick hunspell question: the Somali language has some words that are
written with embedded slashes:

C/fataax
C/laahi

etc.

I'm working (with Mohamed Mursal) on a Somali word list and affix
file, and this seems to be a problem since the slash also delimits the
affix flags in the .dic file.

Any advice?

Kevin

Wouldn't it be best to declare all special characters at the start of the
file ?
Now the / is special but the same issue could apply to any character.

Like WORDCHARS, there could be a
FLAGCHAR /
