Spelling and Searching the Internet: An Overlooked Problem
Proctor, Edward
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v28 n5 p297-305 Sep-Oct 2002
Misspellings, phonetic spellings, deliberately idiosyncratic spellings, typographical, and other errors are examined in relation to the Internet's lack of standardization. Despite the dramatic effect different spellings have on the outcome of searches, this topic has not been adequately addressed in the literature nor have solutions been suggested hitherto.
