      Description

      Problem: SpellChecker is not checking spelling of a word less than 3 characters. i.e "en", "am", "an", etc. So these words are getting misspelled in result.

      Cause:
      org.apache.lucene.search.spell.SpellChecker class is not adding in index dictionary a word which has less than 3 characters.

      The method indexDictionary() in SpellChecker class is ignoring all the characters less than 3 characters length and not adding them in index dictionary.

      Example code:
      SpellChecker luceneSpellChecker = null;

      luceneSpellChecker = new SpellChecker(new RAMDirectory(), new NGramDistance());
      luceneSpellChecker.indexDictionary(
      new PlainTextDictionary( new InputStreamReader(dictionaryFile, "UTF-8")),
      10, 500, false);
      System.out.println("Word 'an' exist? "+luceneSpellChecker.exist("an");
      System.out.println("Word 'am' exist? "+luceneSpellChecker.exist("am");
