Many natural language applications, like machine translation and information extraction, are required to operate on text with spelling errors. Those spelling mistakes have to be corrected automatically to avoid deteriorating the performance of such applications. In this work, we introduce a novel approach for automatic correction of spelling mistakes by deploying finite state automata to propose candidates corrections within a specified edit distance from the misspelled word.
