They used the individual letter inputs as the basic unit of analysis to build the set of candidate sentences and a statistical language model that was an amalgamation of tri-gram modeling and maximum likelihood-based methods to serve as the benchmark from which to derive the candidate set.
Since the researchers did not seek to control the number of input errors per sentence, this model may prove to be more robust and have a higher accurate prediction rate when limited to only one error as was the case in the graphic input system approach to spell-check.

Under any input method, the user types a string of letters, the computer looks up the conversion dictionary specified by the input method and presents the user with a list of choices/candidate characters to which the string is mapped.
With this input method, common characters can be input with just 2 key strokes and the maximum number of key strokes for any character is four.
This is particularly useful for input methods that incorporate words and phrases into their conversion dictionaries because the choice menu can be long and you have to 'scroll down' the menu to select the right candidate (usually with certain keys but sometimes with the mouse).

Cantonese Chinese import of British, U.S. and other foreign vocabularies can be appropriated to the Japanese katakana system, except in Cantonese, these terms and concepts are integrated and Sinicized whereas in Japanese, they are kept separate as foreign.
Unusual for a regional (i.e., non-Mandarin) Chinese language, Cantonese has a written form, developed over the last few decades in Hong Kong, and includes many unique characters that are not found in standard written Chinese.
Another problem is with Chinese characters: Cantonese uses the same system of characters as Mandarin, but it often uses different words, which have to be written with different or new characters.
