TYPO(I)                      5/15/74                      TYPO(I)

     typo - find possible typos

     typo [ -1 ] [ -n ] file ...

     Typo hunts through a document for unusual words, typographic
     errors, and hapax legomena and prints them on  the  standard

     The words used in the document are printed out in decreasing
     order of peculiarity along with an index of peculiarity.  An
     index  of  10  or  more is considered peculiar.  Printing of
     certain very common English words is suppressed.

     The statistics for judging words are taken from the document
     itself,  with  some  help  from known statistics of English.
     The -n option suppresses the help from English and should be
     used if the document is written in, for example, Urdu.

     The  -1 option causes the final output to appear in a single
     column instead of three columns.  The normal header and pag-
     ination is also suppressed.

     Roff(I)  and  nroff(I) control lines are ignored.  Upper
     case is mapped into lower case.  Quote marks, vertical bars,
     hyphens,  and  ampersands  within  words  are  equivalent to
     spaces.  Words hyphenated across lines are put back  togeth-


     Because  of the mapping into lower case and the stripping of
     special characters, words may be hard to locate in the orig-
     inal text.

     The  escape  sequences of troff(I) are not correctly recog-
