Word validation endpoint - would this feature be useful to you?

We’ve been wondering recently if a word validation endpoint would be helpful to you when you are making requests to the API.

Put simply, the word validation endpoint will tell you if a word is in the dictionary. This would extend the functionality of our lemmatron endpoint, which currently identifies those words that are not headwords themselves because they are derivatives of other words (for example, the lemmatron would tell you that ‘dogs’ is a plural of ‘dog’, and you could then make a request to ‘dog’, which has its own entry), and help users to identify when a searched word cannot be found because it has been misspelled or does not exist.

Does this sound like something that would be useful for you? Let us know!
