# Find suggestions for incorrect words
hunspell_suggest(words[!correct])

# Extract incorrect from a piece of text
bad <- hunspell("spell checkers are not neccessairy for langauge ninja's")
print(bad[[1]])
hunspell_suggest(bad[[1]])

# Stemming
words <- c("love", "loving", "lovingly", "loved", "lover", "lovely", "love")
