View Full Version : Improving /usr/share/dict/*

July 13th, 2009, 05:05 PM
Hello everyone.

I am beginning development of a program that will deal with dictionaries. An obvious resource for this is /usr/share/dict/*.

Can anyone give me a hint about where I should direct fixes to those dictionaries? I have found that /usr/share/dict/spanish, in particular, has a big amount of bugs (Ubuntu 9.04).

These bugs include not only non-existent words, but also malformed words and non-existent characters, as well as lots of missing words, so I think my corrections could be of interest to the wider community.
