Spelling Variants Model

Introduction

From the results of non-lead-end words filters, we observed that if a term has associated spelling variant(s) exist in the same corpus (The MEDLINE n-Gram set), it is likely a valid multiword. Thus, we developed algorithms of spelling variants pattern to identify spelling variants group from n-Grams. This can be used as matchers to retrieve valid multiwords from n-Grams.

Definiton and types

By definition, spVars are terms that have same meaning, categories (POS), pronuncitaion, syntax, and different spelling. They are the different spelling from American and British English.
