According to Philippe Riviere:

First of all you're missing the root2word and word2root databases which
are required for the endings algorithm and which are created using htfuzzy
with the "endings" algorithm option.

Then you might also need to use the soundex algorithm to catch sound-alike
words with misspelled, i.e. non-accentuated, characters. I'm not too sure
about that one though.. would be worth a try.
