> There are already spell checkers such as [Hunspell|http://hunspell.github.io/] (which
has its own API to define suffixes and prefix), and simpler spell checkers like [jazzy (forked)|https://github.com/reckart/jazzy].
> Hunspell (GPL/mixed) is written in C++, and Java programs that use it normally use native
access through [BridJ|https://github.com/thomas-joiner/HunspellBridJ]/[JNA|https://github.com/dren-dk/HunspellJNA].
Jazzy (LGPL) is good, but not actively maintained, and simply looks up words from a dictionary.
> We can provide a simple interface, and perhaps one or two different spell checkers in
pure Java.
> Having edit distances already in the project, we could investigate something such as
adding a [BK-Tree|https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BK-tree], an in-memory look-up spell checker,
etc.
> When creating the initial interfaces & design, it will be important to remember that
we want to support multiple languages too.
