In this paper the author presents a new similarity measure for strings of characters based on S3M which he expands to take into account not only the characters set and sequence but also their position. After demonstrating the superiority of this new measure and discussing the need for a self adaptive spell checker, this work is further developed into an adaptive spell checker that produces a cluster with a defined number of words for each presented misspelled word. The accuracy of this solution is measured comparing its results against the results of the most widely used spell checker.
