Abstract

In this paper, we describe the construction details of a confused character set for Chinese spell checking. The SIGHAN 2013-2015 bakeoff datasets are adopted to measure the performance of correct character suggestions. Our confusion set significantly outperforms the existing confusion set in candidate selection for automatic spelling checkers.
