Jim Ferenczi commented on LUCENE-8816:
--------------------------------------

This sounds like a great plan [~tomoko]. Decoupling the system dictionary should help for the merge of the Korean tokenizer but I agree that this merge is out of scope for this issue.

> As many Japanese already know, default built-in dictionary bundled with Kuromoji (MeCab IPADIC) is a bit old and no longer maintained for many years.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.
