    Reverse Spell Checker?

    Create a reverse spell checker in ruby, that returns a list of possible misspellings, with the probability of that misspelling. The final deliverable can be a ruby script, or simple Ruby on Rails app.

    For example, given and input of the word "lawyer", give back a list of misspellings, with the probability of that word being misspelled.

    Input: "lawyer"

    Outout (return top 50 items):
    misspelling, probability (based on 0 - 1 scale)
    "lawer", .1
    "layer",.08



    Can anybody complete this, as I will pay for it.

    Based on your post this looks like a homework assignment. Is it?

    Hi there is no algorithm I know of.

    This job description is merely a proposal given to me by one of my clients.

    I think they want to pay around $200 or more.

    last year I start a similar project based on two methods to compute probablities but in perl. The biggest chalange was to manage the dictionary,
    the project is still unfinished mainly because was for my own pleasure and I had more important things to do,

    I don't have to much code in ruby, written by me, and last time when I use it was more then one years ago. That means that further question I could ask can waste your time but in my opinion is a good idea to post more details about project if this is possible.

    best regards
