I want to share with you how Ghotit (www.Ghotit.com) works.
Ghotit has a premise that there is no sequence of words that you are the first person in the word that write them and if you are most probably you are wrong.

Fore example if you do a Google search for the following 2 sentences:

"Meet you at 8"
"Meat you at 8"

You will find that the frequency for the first sentence is 3,690
And for the second sentence the frequency is only 8

The results give you a clear indication that in the second sentence the word Meat is misused.

Ghotit has 2 colors for induction of spelling problems:

Red – words that are misspelled
Blue – words that Ghotit suspect as misused

When you go over the corrections Ghotit offers pleas indicated in cases you can find a suggestion the following:

Ignore – this is the word I wanted to spell
No relevant – I did not find a relevant suggestion.

When you finish all corrections Ghotit will run a second time automatically and will offer you new corrections.

I will be happy to receive any comments.
