A Composition Analysis on Myanmar Personal Author Names
- In Cataloguing of Myanmar personal author names,there are some problems in identifying the name element which is to be applied as a heading in cataloguing. Having no tradition of using a family name, but assuming many different names for works by an author have caused such problems.The paper has analyzed the compositions of Myanmar personal author names to identify what the heading for a particular author is. Though analysis, there are three main components although they may differ in numbers.It is found that one of the components, the honorific prefix, plays a key role in identifying heading. With a new approach to the cataloguing rules the paper has prepared a table to categorize the different compositional structure of Myanmar personal author names, and to enter them under more functional headings.
