The Neighbors Levenshtein table

The Neighbors Levenshtein table lists all types from Types together with their orthographic neighbors according to the definition by Levenshtein (1966).

According to this definition, an orthographic neighbor differs from its reference type by exactly one change operation, where a change operation is one of inserting, deleting or exchanging one character. It is also said that the edit distance between the two types is 1.

Example: Fliege has higher frequency Levenshtein neighbors liege, Flieger und Fliegen, and less frequent Levenshtein neighbors fliege, Flieg, Fliegt, Fliese and more.

For the number of orthographic neighbors of a type, and their cumulative frequency, please refer to the Types table.
