Devanagari script is a two dimensional composition of symbols. It is highly cumbersome to treat each composite character as a separate atomic symbol because such combinations are very large in number. This paper presents a two pass algorithm for the segmentation and decomposition of Devanagari composite characters/symbols into their constituent symbols. The proposed algorithm extensively uses structural properties of the script. In the first pass, words are segmented into easily separable… CONTINUE READING
