The field of computational linguistics has two aims: The technological. But computer systems do not have much knowledge of the world and do not do a good job of making use of the context. Approaches to Ambiguity. Efforts to solve the problem of ambiguity have focused on two potential solutions: knowledge-based and statistical.

2) branch of linguistics that studies the relationship between graphemes and sounds. A lot of the traditional spellings in French, for the English spelling of the al is also fundamental. So, for example, now such words as knight "knight" and night "night" are pronounced the same way, but are written differently and exactly as it was spelled and pronounced in the XIV century.

The differences were and are largely. The differences were and are largely matters of attitude, emphasis, and purpose.

English Spelling and the Computer provides a thorough examination of English spelling focusing in particular on the difficulties faced by present day spellers. Most people make spelling mistakes and while word processors with spellcheckers do offer some help, they do not catch all the errors, and often make inappropriate suggestions. This book looks at common errors and explains why they are made. A knowledge of the history and development of English spelling is useful for understanding the problems of spelling and the difficulties spellcheckers are trying to address. The book therefore begins by examining the history of spelling and goes on to consider the arguments for and against reform. This is followed by an analysis of a large corpus of spelling errors including both the errors that people make when they do not know how to spell a word and the errors they make when they know how to spell the word but for some reason write something different.The second part of the book describes how spellcheckers store their dictionaries, detect errors, retrieve sets of suggestions and rank-order them for the user. Roger Mitton describes the techniques used by spellcheckers and shows why they come up with their occasionally curious lists. The technical material in this part of the book is carefully explained, so familiarity with computer programming is not essential for grasping the main concepts.The book will appeal to students of English language, to teachers of pupils with spelling problems and to psychologists with an interest in spelling, as well as to computer scientists specializing in the processing of text.
