A Contextual Postprocessing System for Error Correction Using Binary n-Grams
May 1974 (vol. 23 no. 5)
pp. 480-493
E.M. Riseman, Department of Computer and Information Science, University of Massachusetts
The effectiveness of various forms of contextual information in a postprocessing system for detection and correction of errors in words is examined. Various algorithms utilizing context are considered, from a dictionary algorithm which has available the maximum amount of information, to a set of contextual algorithms utilizing positional binary n-gram statistics. The latter information differs from the usual n-gram letter statistics in that the probabilities are position-dependent and each is quantized to 1 or 0, depending upon whether or not it is nonzero. This type of information is extremely compact and the computation for error correction is orders of magnitude less than that required by the dictionary algorithm.
