Just have a suggestion for a workaround, You could use the alias feature to make the unlinked backlinks show up? It’s probably a bit too much work, but if you really needed it that could be one way.
[Current Behaviour]: Unlinked mentions DO require a whitespace to get match
A) Only exact ⌴커피⌴ will be matched by default by the unlinked mention algorithm. (⌴ = whitespace)
B) Use aliases in the page 커피 if you want to handle postposition 커피를.
[Proposed change]: Unlinked mentions DO NOT require a whitespace to get match
A) Everything ***커피*** will be matched by default by the unlinked mention algorithm. (* stands for any other character)
B) When you click on ***커피*** you will get ***[[커피]]***
No need for aliases for handling postposition 커피를.
Hi, got here from Korean Discord Channel. I do think this is a complicated thing for the Korean Language.
One improvement I could suggest is instead of matching everything ***커피***, just match 커피*** since in the Korean language, propositions only come after the noun. This way it will have less mismatches where a word could be inside another word for example,
그네 (swing) and 나그네 (traveler/wanderer) . This won’t prevent all the mismatches, but I think it would prevent some.
There could be cases where extra text in front could specify a more broader topic such as, 나무(tree) and 소나무(pinetree), but I think in this case, backlinks shouldn’t be the same since they are different words.
Also, I think it would be nice if there was a way to remove the backlink suggestion if they are different words, but not sure if that’s in the scope of this discussion.
Propositions in Korean do come after noun, but I still think matching like @@커피@@ should be the way. It’s because there are so many compound words in Korean and there are no space in between. (and also many people are clumsy at spacing words)
Unlinked backlinks could be kinda loose but better than loosing opportunity to link ideas. And by the way, many Koreans are already used to finding words in @@커피@@ style because word-processors in Korea work that way.
