The service provides spelling suggestions, including alternatives spellings, for words provided as part of a request. It can draw recommendations either from a collection of dictionaries or from a particular one specified in a request. Dictionaries focused on particular fields and topic domains help to accommodate differences in use of the same word in varying contexts.
API methods support submission of a word as a string in the request URL to return a list of close matches from the service's master dictionary. Methods also support restriction of a request to field-specific dictionaries for biology, earth sciences, mathematics, and library science. Returned data then list only the words that closely match the requested string as used within that particular discipline.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
