English term or phrase: yomi
Как переводится yomi?

The Japanese kana characters that indicate the correct pronunciation, sorting, and grouping behavior of a word written in kanji. The name of a field that stores such characters and can impact the sorting/grouping behavior of a corresponding field that can contain a word written in kanji. Typically used to modify the kanji field’s name (e.g. “Yomi Last Name” specifies how to correctly pronounce/sort/group “Last Name”). The main distinction compared to “phonetic” is that sorting/grouping behavior is expected to be impacted for “yomi”, but not for “phonetic”.
