"SEMI-LOSSLESS TEXT COMPRESSION"

Abstract:
A new notion, that of semi-lossless text compression, is introduced,
and its applicability in various settings is investigated. First
results suggest that it might be hard to exploit the additional
redundancy of English texts, but the new methods could be useful in
applications where the correct spelling is not important, such as in
short emails, and the new notion raises some interesting research
problems in several different areas of Stringology.
