Vocabulary correction and verification

UZEI has developed the lexical checker IDITE (see IDITE) for correcting and checking vocabulary.

This tool allows you to write and correct texts in Basque in accordance with the regulations and recommendations of standard vocabulary, and bring texts written some time ago into line with present-day Basque.

Large quantities of text can be analysed, and, apart from correcting typical spelling corrector errors, it makes use proposals based on recommendations by regulatory authorities (Euskaltzaindia, Academy of the Basque Language and the Terminology Committee).

For example, spelling correctors would accept the term “gangaila” [lobe] in a text, because, as far as spelling is concerned, it is correct.  However, IDITE would propose replacing it by “gingil”, indicating that it is the term recommended by Euskaltzaindia.
