ABSTRACT
 
Misspelling is studied with reference to Arbaic.  A new algorithm to detect and correct misspelling errors in Arabic is given.  Four kinds of misspelling caused by the substituition, omission and insertion of one letter and the transposition of two adjacent letters can be detected and corrected by the algorithm with frequency and trigram analyses used to identify the most likely correct word.  Test results based on frequency analysis indicate that the success rates for recovering the orginal word are 45.1%, 14.5%, 97.0% and 21.2% for the four types of misspelling, respectively.  The use of trigram analysis produced rates of 28.6%, 6.0%, 76.5% and 30.9%; respectively.
