Abstract

A Writeable Prefix Addenda memory (WPA) enhances vocabulary coverage characteristics for spelling verification of agglutinating languages, such as German and Dutch. The WPA is used in conjunction with a Stem Processing function wherein a word is searched for a verifiable root by removing any of a set of identifiable prefixes and suffixes.
