I really don't have time to study that whole page.  All I am interested in 
is what type of framework is needed to support compound words.  Such as a 
set of rules.  Like when joining xx and xx insert x, etc.  Sorry but I 
rather focus on writing a spell checker than learning the complicated 
grammar rules of other languages.

How far would rules such as.  If 'A' ends in 'a' and 'B' starts with 'b' 
then insert 'x' when joining A + B.  Is there ever a need to insert more 
than one letter.  Ever need to remove a letter?  Those are the types of 
things I am interested in.
