Thanks for looking into this. But the patch you have submitted is not what it needs. This is much larger and needs to be configured at the scheme file level. Basically the scheme file will have a rule which specify how normalization should happen for the particular language and libvarnam applies it during learning.

In Unicode, there are characters which look same but have different code points. The atomic chills is Malayalam is an example. Also Unicode text can contain metadata characters like "SOFT HYPHEN (xad)". This has to be removed and normalized to a standard form while learning a word.

Scheme file will define the word normalization rules and varnam will apply them while learning.
