Capturing Errors in Written Chinese Words
A collection of 3208 reported errors of Chinese words were analyzed. Among which, 7.2% involved rarely used character, and 98.4% were assigned common classifications of their causes by human subjects. In particular, 80% of the errors observed in writings of middle school students were related to the pronunciations and 30% were related to the compositions of words. Experimental results show that using intuitive Web-based statistics helped us capture only about 75% of these errors. In a related task, the Web-based statistics are useful for recommending incorrect characters for composing test items for "incorrect character identification" tests about 93% of the time.
