C source and dictionary (329k zip)

[ Noble Ape | Tom Barbalet ]


FreeEngl is an open source spell checker developed with a reduced version of the CMU dictionary. The software takes an example text document and shows any spelling mistakes (ie words not found in the CMU dictionary).

A secondary requirement will be providing possible words spelt correctly from the mistakes in the original text. This component is still in development.

The final requirement is to improve the use of the program either as a library or with a better i/o interface.

Current TODO List

  • Reduce dictionary by about 75% - large number of unneeded words
  • Work through dictionary tree to find possible correct spellings on spelling errors
