Abstract Introducing texts to word processing tools may result in spelling errors. Hence text processing application softwares has spell checkers. Integrating spell checker into word processors reduces the amount of time and energy spent to find and correct the misspelled word. However these tools are not available for Afaan Oromo Cushitic language family spoken in Ethiopia. In this paper we describe the design and implementation of a non-word Afaan Oromo spell checker. The system is designed based on a dictionary look-up with morphological analysis i.e. morphology based spell checker. To develop morphology based spell checker the knowledge of the language morphology is necessarily required. Accordingly the morphological properties of Afaan Oromo have been studied. To the best of our knowledge this work is the first of its kind for Afaan Oromo. The methodology delineated in the paper can be replicated for other languages showing similar morphology with Afaan Oromo.
