Abstract

This publication describes a technique for providing a flexible supplemental dictionary for a spelling correction system by implementing the supplemental dictionary as a user created document which can be viewed and edited as required. "CREATE DOCUMENT OF SUPPLEMENTAL WORDS" task in the Spelling Task Selection Menu prompts the operator with a document name and a work diskette name in which the document of supplemental words will be contained.
