    That's all nice and dandy, but Korean also knows a lot of ambiguous words
    where, depending on where you end the syllable, the word means one thing or
    the other, but you'd type them in the same way on a Latin-based keyboard.

    Can't at the moment remember an example, but just pulling jamo left or right
    does not always cut it. You *will* need a manual way of marking off a
    syllable end.
