Nice, I've never seen this kind of approach to this problem before, very creative!

I wouldn't use it in part because tools exist to correct the error immediately or catch it at build-time, but I do find it interesting how this, in a way, "humanizes" computers.

As in, people have a sort of built-in autofix in our brains; if I were to say, "Last night, I ate some chicken fried dice," even though "dice" is an actual word most would autofix that to "rice" in their heads.

So this is kinda like that but for computers 😉
