Language model, permutations filtering, confusion matrix, word order errors.


This paper presents an approach for correcting word order errors in Greek texts by reordering the words in a sentence and choosing the version that maximizes the number of trigram hits according to a language model. The novelty of this method concerns the use of an efficient confusion matrix technique for reordering the words. The comparative advantage of this method is that works with a large set of words, and avoids the laborious and costly process of collecting word order errors for creating error patterns.
