Development of Yoruba Language Spell Checker Using Interpolation Algorithm
Globally, more and more people are using computers today because the English language is dominating language in this field. The dominance of the English language is quite overwhelming in Nigeria, and the use of computers has so far been greatly restricted only to those people who have some knowledge of the English language. This has resulted in fast way of killing the major indigenous language in the country especially the Yoruba language. Yoruba language is less used among its people because their roles have been taken over by the English language. This prompted the need to develop a text editor that will give Yoruba language a public profile in the information technology (IT) world so as to provide a platform for people to appreciate the beauty of their indigenous language.
