• This paper introduces a spelling correction system which integrates seamlessly with morphological analysis using a multi-tape formalism. Handling of various Semitic er- ror problems is illustrated, with reference to Arabic and Syriac examples. The model handles errors vocalisation, diacritics, pho- netic syncopation and morphographemic idiosyncrasies, in addition to Damerau er- rors. A complementary correction strategy for morphologically sound but morphosyn- tactically ill-formed words is outlined.
