When I search for a word in Gmail I wish to find emails that contain misspellings of that word, as well as finding emails that contain the correct spelling of a mis-spelt search.

The Google web search sometimes copes with this, but Gmail does not seem to.

I am looking for something like "sounds like".


There is no way of doing that in gmail. You can use OR in query to search for more than one word, but I don't think that this is what you want.
