Hi I've been working on a number of rules to spot typo's in my own written work.
Here are four I've tested on the rule editor, which didn't identify any false alarms.
I've also looked at a number of rules for Suite/Suit, but this has proven to be more difficult.

<rule id="DEPENDENT" name="Dependent" >    
            <pattern>
                <marker>
                    <token>dependant</token>
                </marker>
                <token>on</token>
            </pattern>
            <message>Did you mean <suggestion>dependent</suggestion> on?</message>
            <example type="correct">They are dependent on the results</example>
            <example type="incorrect">They are dependant on the results</example>
        </rule>


<rule id="ESSENTIALLY" name="essentially" >    
            <pattern>
                <marker>
                    <token>essential</token>
                </marker>
                <token postag='DT'><exception>that</exception></token>
            </pattern>
            <message>Did you mean <suggestion>essentially</suggestion>?</message>
            <example type="correct">This is essentially the same work</example>
            <example type="incorrect">This is essential the same work.</example>
        </rule>


<rule id="VERBGAVE" name="verb before gave" >    
            <pattern>
                <token postag='VB|VBP' postag_regexp='yes'><exception postag='NNP|NN|NNS' postag_regexp='yes'></exception></token>
                <marker>
                    <token>gave</token>
                    <token negate='yes'>in</token>
                </marker>
            </pattern>
            <message>Did you mean <suggestion>give</suggestion>?</message>
            <example type="correct">The updates do give the correct date.</example>
            <example type="incorrect">The updates do gave the correct date.</example>
        </rule>


<rule id="TOWITHDRAWN" name="to|will before withdrawn" >    
            <pattern>
                <token regexp="yes">to|will</token>
                <marker>
                    <token>withdrawn</token>
                </marker>
            </pattern>
            <message>Did you mean <suggestion>withdraw</suggestion>?</message>
            <example type="correct">The team will withdraw.</example>
            <example type="correct">The team are to withdraw.</example>
            <example type="incorrect">The team will withdrawn.</example>
        </rule>
