The SPECIALIST Spelling Resources: gSpell

The SPECIALIST spelling resources include two programs GSpell a spelling suggestion tool and BagOwordsPlus a phrase retrieval tool.

GSpell uses several word similarity algorithms to suggest correct spellings for misspelled words. Unlike other spelling suggestion programs GSpell treats space as it would any other letter so that GSpell can correct errors in word compounding. GSpell also be used in word similarity tasks that do not involve misspelling.

BagOWordsPlus uses the word similarity algorithms of GSpell to perform word similarity based phrase level information retrieval.

Please note the latest version of this project was developed in Java 1.4, Linux, 2006. There is no further development since 2006 due to limited resource in our organization. It can be used "as is" with limited supports. Sorry for causing any inconvenience!
