Description gijsbert 2004-05-10 03:36:48 UTC
Spell checker should warn that a word is being repeated. For example, in the
following sentence the second use of the word 'the' should be warned about,
because it is an error.

"He likes the the girl in the store"

This type of error occurs very often and is being warned about in many

The lingucomponent project can do nothing to fix this.  lingucomponent literally does not get sent 
sentences and instead gets sent individual words.  The words are not guaranteed to be in the same 
sequence as the sentence they are take from since a cache is kept at a higher level that only checks a 
word with the spellchecker if it has recently already been checked.

What you are asking for would require changes to the lingucomponent api or changes upstream in the 
components that parse sentences and that hand words to the spellchecker.

So I am moving this to sw project.  They may in fact feel that duplicate words are a grammar cheking 
function and not a spell checking function.  But that is something you can debate with them.

A function which detects repeated words in a text is requested.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
