[de] No spelling suggestions for 'Arbeidszimmer'

The German spell checker in the Web version of LT recognizes ‘Arbeitszimmer’ as correct and ‘Arbeidszimmer’ as incorrect, which is fine. However, it does not come up with any suggestions for the wrong form. It has an edit distance of 1 from the correct form, so this is a bit of a surprise. Any ideas?

That was an issue with compounds that require the infix “s”. I’ve added a fix that hopefully also helps for many similar cases (but I’m not sure).

Thanks, Daniel. Now that I’m aware of the problem, I’ll keep an eye out.

Related question: Is there already an automated test in place that checks whether entries in spelling.txt are obsoleted by enhancements to the spell checker? An improvement to the handling of the ‘Fugen-s’ might render a lot of spelling.txt entries unnecessary.

There’s no such test yet. But my change yesterday affected only suggestions, not the detection whether a word is correct or not.

I can confirm that I get the expected suggestions for ‘Arbeidszimmer’ and ‘Arbeidsmoral’ now. Great work!
