Should add a rule to detect confusion between "severe" (adj) and "sever" (verb)


(Dominique PELLÉ) #1

Hi

LanguageTool in English does not detect the confusion between "severe" (adjective) and "sever" (verb).
Examples of incorrect sentences in which LT has false negative:

You need to severe all connections.
The problem is not sever.

Thanks, I've added this pair to confusion_sets.txt.

Thanks.
I think it would also be nice to also have XML rules for some of
the words in confusion_sets.txt, as many users run LT locally
without the large filed required for confusion_sets.txt to kick-in.
