Here's an information retrieval/computational linguistics paper by Hackett and Oard: Comparison of Word-Based and Syllable-Based Retrieval for Tibetan
Abstract Tibetan retrieval based on automatically segmented words is compared with the use of overlapping syllable n-grams using a known-item retrieval evaluation. The optimal span of fixed-length n-grams is found to be 2 syllables, and indexing words is found to be as effective as indexing syllable bigrams.
