Hunting for typos in Wikipedia

Previously, in 2015, I wrote a small script for typo hunting and explained, how it works.

I used it to find many typos in English Wikipedia, some of them I even fixed.

This is an update. I used English Wikipedia dump from 1-jul-2021.

Also, I updated my script for Python 3.x.

All the files.

A short excerpt of my typos list -- these are typos in English Wikipedia that are present right now. (Well, maybe some of those who currently reading this blog post, may fix a typo or two in Wikipedia, so this list may not reflect the current state of it.)


Update for Russian and Ukrainian Wikipedias.
