I am doing some work with scanning Chinese text with my computer and I have run into a problem that I do not have with other languages.
Because there are no spaces between characters, I cannot tell when one word ends and another one begins. Is there any easy way to do this? For example in English I am telling my computer to split things like this:
sentence = "My name is John"
the computer will return a list of words.
computer = ['my', 'name', 'is', 'John']
