  List of comment types used in the Danish Spelling Checker

Since the spelling checker at this stage is only an experimental demonstration tool for a limited number of features in a limited number of contexts, the error types listed below will not be recognized as such by the spelling checker in all kinds of sentences. Error comments are mapped by a separate grammar module on top of the ordinary Constraint Grammar analysis, so the quality of the parser's analysis proper has no direct bearing on the quality of the error comment mapping grammar, which has to be updated and enlarged independently. The only direct link is via the lexicon - improvements in the lexicon will yield a better precision in the spelling checker, i.e. fewer false positive alarms (correct words tagged as wrong due to lexicon gaps).

*1 This tag easily overgenerates, and will be assigned to many real spelling errors, provided the parser can find some - often odd - combination of roots, suffixes or prefixes from its lexicon to match the word form in question.
