Is there a confusion matrix for spelling errors for the German language available?

(Lum ) #1

I am a student from Austria. This might not be the right place to ask this, but LanguageTool was the best option I found.
I want to make a German auto correct project for university. I need to use a German confusion matrix spelling error for insertions, deletions, substitutions, and transpositions. Do you know if these spelling error matrices for the German language are available? If LanguageTool makes use of this, could I use the data?

There’s no such explicit matrix. We simply use hunspell, which tries to find similar words using an algorithm. There’s also a list of character sequences easily confused here.
