January 15, 2008 - “Progess” for Progress

The typo “Progess” for Progress retrieves 73 hits in OhioLINK, with about 26 in the title field. Truncating the typo as “Progess*” retrieves 120 hits, adding plenty of non-English titles to the results. Terry Ballard's "Typographical Errors in Library Databases" list at http://faculty.quinnipiac.edu/libraries/tballard/typoscomplete.html reports only American English typos.
