In what order would search correction happen
Yimmee (10)

When you type in Bing or google or DuckDuckGo, it corrects you so you can get better search results. In what order does it do it?
misspacing No thing -> nothing
misspelling Nothonh -> Nothing
misspace-spelling Not thing -> Nothing
grammar (Just small things like a/an/the bc this is search)

I'm slightly confused, could you maybe reword the question?

@QuickV how does autocorrect work?

QuickV (197)

I'm pretty sure the software just checks each word against a built-in dictionary, and it suggests alternatives when it doesn't find a match.

@Yimmee

Hopefully that answers your question?

If you want to know exactly how it works (as in the code and such), then I probably can't exactly explain that as easily lol.
