Abstract

An approach taken by some existing spelling checking systems is to have all alphabetic characters in lower case form when storing words in the dictionary or supplemental dictionaries. When a word within text is to be compared against the dictionaries, all alphabetic characters are then represented in a lower case form. This approach does not allow for recognition of capitalization errors. Following is a list of examples of capitalization errors which are not detected by existing systems. robert Mcknight iBM aNimal.
