Description alfozavr 2007-04-04 19:38:58 UTC

In Russian language many words can be spelled with both YO("ё") and YE("е") 
letter. The word "honey" can be spelled in Russian as "мёд" or  "мед" and both 
variants are correct.
The rule is: letter YO can be changed to YE in any word. But not vice versa.

Please, think about coding such an enhancement to the spellchecker that will 
make it treat any YO letter in a word with language set to Russian as YE for 
spelling check purposes only.

Why is this important? It will allow to have only one dictionary for Russian 
language with YE. At the moment there are 3 dictionaries available for Russian 
language, 2 with YE and 1 with YO. They all contain the same words, just 
spelled differently. So twice as much words for spellchecker to look through!!!

How this could work. We have a dictionary with all words spelled with YE, no YO 
dictionary needed. If spellchecker finds a word with YE in a text, he finds a 
match in the dictionary and everything is ok. If spellchecker finds the same 
word with YO in a text, he then internally changes YO to YE and again finds a 
match in the dictionary and everything is again ok.
