---------------------------------------

Hi [~danmuzi],

thanks for opening the issue. I hope both changes will be safely merged at some point in time.
{quote}I'll notify you if there is some progress.

I will keep watching your updates in there, though I'd like to withhold approval or disapproval
to it.

> As many Japanese already know, default built-in dictionary bundled with Kuromoji (MeCab
IPADIC) is a bit old and no longer maintained for many years. While it has been slowly obsoleted,
well-maintained and/or extended dictionaries risen up in recent years (e.g. [mecab-ipadic-neologd|https://github.com/neologd/mecab-ipadic-neologd],
[UniDic|https://unidic.ninjal.ac.jp/]). To use them with Kuromoji, some attempts/projects/efforts
are made in Japan.
> However current architecture - dictionary bundled jar - is essentially incompatible with
the idea "switch the system dictionary", and developers have difficulties to do so.
> Traditionally, the morphological analysis engine (viterbi logic) and the encoded dictionary
(language model) had been decoupled (like MeCab, the origin of Kuromoji, or lucene-gosen).
So actually decoupling them is a natural idea, and I feel that it's good time to re-think
the current architecture.
> Also this would be good for advanced users who have customized/re-trained their own system
dictionary.
> Goals of this issue:
>  * Decouple JapaneseTokenizer itself and encoded system dictionary.
>  * Implement dynamic dictionary load mechanism.
>  * Provide developer-oriented dictionary build tool.
> Non-goals:
>   * Provide learner or language model (it's up to users and should be outside the scope).
> I have not dove into the code yet, so have no idea about it's easy or difficult at this
moment.
