A Comprehensive Bangla Spelling Checker

By Naushad Uzzaman and Mumit Khan


We present a comprehensive Bangla spelling checker that improves the quality of suggestions for misspelled words. The complex rules for Bangla spelling presents a significant challenge in producing suggestions for a misspelled word when employing the traditional methods; one must take phonetic similarity into account for suggested alternatives to be reasonably accurate. In Bangla there are several algorithms available for spell checking, however, none of these considers the complex orthographic rules of Bangla. As a result, spelling checker application does not perform well. In this paper, we describe the process of checking the spelling of a Bangla document (i.e. detecting misspelled words, generating suggestions for misspelled word, and ranking the suggestions), compare the methodologies with existing solutions available in the literature, and then propose solutions for each step. Finally, we conclude by showing the performance and evaluation of our proposed solution. 1
