CLDR Ticket #8368(accepted data)
Hyphen at word boundary should be part of the word in Finnish
|Reported by:||hatapitk@…||Owned by:||andy|
In Finnish HYPHEN-MINUS may be used at the beginning or end of the word to represent a part of the word that has been omitted. For example
"sosiaali- ja terveysministeriö" (ministry of social affairs and health)
According to current CLDR rules there is a word boundary between "sosiaali" and "-". This causes problems with spell checking since "sosiaali" is not a valid word, it is a prefix. It would be better to consider the hyphen as a part of the word.
Another example is
"syntymäaika ja -paikka" (date and place of birth)
Here it would also be correct to consider the hyphen as a part of the word but current behavior does not cause problems with spell checking.
At least Microsoft Office does consider hyphen to be part of the word similarly as I have suggested here. OpenOffice.org and LibreOffice had similar customization for CLDR rules for many years until recently the customization was removed to fix other issues (see https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=55707). Rather than re-applying the customization in LibreOffice I would appreciate if you could consider applying this tweak directly to Finnish CLDR rules.
