A description of text processing work at Bell Labs, including the use of 
trigrams for spell checking, readability analysis, and word class 
assignment was published in the BSTJ.

L. E. McMahon; L. L. Cherry; R. Morris. Statistical text processing. The 
Bell System Technical Journal, 57(6):2137-2154, July-Aug. 1978.
DOI: 10.1002/j.1538-7305.1978.tb02146.x

The article was part of an amazing special issue of BSTJ devoted to 
Unix.  A second such issue, 63(8) was published on October 1984.  In the 
late 1980s both issues were also sold as books by Prentice Hall under 
the title "UNIX System Readings and Applications".  I broke the bank 
buying them as a student, but didn't regret it.
