The problem with "ar" is it is too short to know for certain what it
should be... "ar" though likely a typo for "are" could also be a typo
for e.g. "arm", "arc", "arg", "ark", and "arp".

Perhaps in this and similar cases the script should flag these errors
for human attention rather than automatically fixing them.
