This paper presents a method for incor- porating word pronunciation information in a noisy channel model for spelling cor- rection. The proposed method builds an explicit error model for word pronuncia- tions. By modeling pronunciation simi- larities between words we achieve a sub- stantial performance improvement over the previous best performing models for spelling correction.
