Non-Native Writers’ Errors – a Challenge to a Spell-Checker
2014 (English)In: 1st Nordic workshop on evaluation of spellchecking and proofing tools (NorWEST2014), 2014, , 3 p.Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
Spell checkers are widely used and if they do their job properly are also highly useful. Usually they are built on the assumption that the text to be corrected is written by a mature native speaker. However non-native speakers are in an even greater need of using spell checkers than native speakers. On the other hand current spell checkers do not take the linguistic problems of learners into account and thus they are poor in identifying errors and supplying the adequate corrections. There is a number of linguistic complexities specific to non-native learners that a spell-checker would need to handle in order to be successful.
