1. Phonologic segmentation of Burmese Syllables
2. Orthographic segmentation of Burmese Syllables
3. Line Breaking or Word Wrapping
It can handle three types of documents:
1. Text Documents (.txt) files
2. XML Documents (.xml) files
3. MS Word Documents (.doc) files
By handling XML documents, we hope that it will be useful for segmenting all types of other documents like Spreadsheet files, Database files, etc.
I hope all of our friends and Burmese community will help us in testing it.

Syllable segmentation is the process of determination of syllable boundaries in a piece of text. Since Burmese is the tonal and analytic language and Burmese writing system is a syllabic writing system, the fundamental building blocks of a language are the syllables. In determination of syllable boundaries in Burmese Script, there can be of two types; 1) phonological boundary of a syllable, and 2) orthographic boundary of a syllable. Since Burmese script is a phonetic script, the phonological segmentation of a syllable is the basic segmentation. The phonological boundary of a syllable is defined, as the name goes, according to the phonological manner whereas the orthographic boundary of a syllable is defined according to the orthography. The orthographic syllable need not correspond exactly with a phonological syllable. The orthographic syllable is just the combination of phonological syllables and the non-breaking rules. Example: In a မႏၱေလး word, it has 3 phonological syllables, မန္, တ and ေလး. But, for orthographic syllable, it has just 2 syllables, မႏၱ and ေလး .

A word, is a unit of language, carries meaning and consists of one or more morphemes. Although there are spaces to separate between words English, no spaces are needed to add in
So, word boundary must be detected for Myanmar Language. But, Myanmar Language is the tonal and analytic language.
A word can be formed by one or more than one syllables.
Syllable break which can be used for sorting, searching, text to speech, transliteration, can also be used for word breaking methods.Word break which can be used for spell checking, grammar checking, translation, line breaking, etc,.
