TitleLexicalization for proofing tools
AbstractThis paper discusses some of the crucial issues related to the construction of word lists for proofing tools such as spelling checkers. The more specific problem of derivational morphology is described and the paper argues that efforts made over the past few years to build generative morphology components have mainly been driven by the need to recognize neologisms and novel forms in an analysis perspective. The inevitable over-generation which has been neglected on too many occasions forces computational linguists and lexicographers to resort to hybrid methods when constructing their lexicons for spell-checkers, which cannot afford mis-analyzing erroneous input or suggesting aberrant forms.
