en_US Hunspell Dictionary

README file for English Hunspell dictionaries derived from SCOWL.
7
 
8
These dictionaries are created using the speller/make-hunspell-dict
9
script in SCOWL.
10
 
11
The following dictionaries are available:
12
 
13
  en_US (American)
14
  en_CA (Canadian)
15
  en_GB-ise (British with "ise" spelling)
16
  en_GB-ize (British with "ize" spelling)
17
  en_AU (Australian)
18
 
19
  en_US-large
20
  en_CA-large
21
  en_GB-large (with both "ise" and "ize" spelling)
22
  en_AU-large
23
 
24
The normal (non-large) dictionaries correspond to SCOWL size 60 and,
25
to encourage consistent spelling, generally only include one spelling
26
variant for a word.  The large dictionaries correspond to SCOWL size
27
70 and may include multiple spelling for a word when both variants are
28
considered almost equal.  The larger dictionaries however (1) have not
29
been as carefully checked for errors as the normal dictionaries and
30
thus may contain misspelled or invalid words; and (2) contain
31
uncommon, yet valid, words that might cause problems as they are
32
likely to be misspellings of more common words (for example, "ort" and
33
"calender").
34
 
35
To get an idea of the difference in size, here are 25 random words
36
only found in the large dictionary for American English:
37
 
38
  Bermejo Freyr's Guenevere Hatshepsut Nottinghamshire arrestment
39
  crassitudes crural dogwatches errorless fetial flaxseeds godroon
40
  incretion jalapeño's kelpie kishkes neuroglias pietisms pullulation
41
  stemwinder stenoses syce thalassic zees
42
 
43
The en_US, en_CA and en_AU are the official dictionaries for Hunspell.
44
The en_GB and large dictionaries are made available on an experimental
45
basis.  If you find them useful please send me a quick email at
46
kevina@gnu.org.
47
 
48
If none of these dictionaries suite you (for example, maybe you want
49
the normal dictionary that also includes common variants) additional
50
dictionaries can be generated at http://app.aspell.net/create or by
51
modifying speller/make-hunspell-dict in SCOWL.  Please do let me know
52
if you end up publishing a customized dictionary.
53
 
54
If a word is not found in the dictionary or a word is there you think
55
shouldn't be, you can lookup the word up at http://app.aspell.net/lookup
56
to help determine why that is.
57
 
58
General comments on these list can be sent directly to me at
59
kevina@gnu.org or to the wordlist-devel mailing lists
60
(https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/wordlist-devel).  If you
61
have specific issues with any of these dictionaries please file a bug
62
report at https://github.com/kevina/wordlist/issues.
63
 
64
IMPORTANT CHANGES INTRODUCED In 2016.11.20:
65
 
66
New Australian dictionaries thanks to the work of Benjamin Titze
67
(btitze@protonmail.ch).
68
 
69
IMPORTANT CHANGES INTRODUCED IN 2016.04.24:
70
 
71
The dictionaries are now in UTF-8 format instead of ISO-8859-1.  This
72
was required to handle smart quotes correctly.
73
 
74
IMPORTANT CHANGES INTRODUCED IN 2016.01.19:
75
 
76
"SET UTF8" was changes to "SET UTF-8" in the affix file as some
77
versions of Hunspell do not recognize "UTF8".
78
 
79
ADDITIONAL NOTES:
80
 
81
The NOSUGGEST flag was added to certain taboo words.  While I made an
82
honest attempt to flag the strongest taboo words with the NOSUGGEST
83
flag, I MAKE NO GUARANTEE THAT I FLAGGED EVERY POSSIBLE TABOO WORD.
84
The list was originally derived from Németh László, however I removed
85
some words which, while being considered taboo by some dictionaries,
86
are not really considered swear words in today's society.
87
 
88
COPYRIGHT, SOURCES, and CREDITS:
89
 
90
The English dictionaries come directly from SCOWL
91
and is thus under the same copyright of SCOWL.  The affix file is
92
a heavily modified version of the original english.aff file which was
93
released as part of Geoff Kuenning's Ispell and as such is covered by
94
his BSD license.  Part of SCOWL is also based on Ispell thus the
95
Ispell copyright is included with the SCOWL copyright.
96
 
97
The collective work is Copyright 2000-2016 by Kevin Atkinson as well
98
as any of the copyrights mentioned below:

110
 
111
Alan Beale <biljir@pobox.com> also deserves special credit as he has,
112
in addition to providing the 12Dicts package and being a major
113
contributor to the ENABLE word list, given me an incredible amount of
114
feedback and created a number of special lists (those found in the
115
Supplement) in order to help improve the overall quality of SCOWL.
116
 
117
The 10 level includes the 1000 most common English words (according to
118
the Moby (TM) Words II [MWords] package), a subset of the 1000 most
119
common words on the Internet (again, according to Moby Words II), and
120
frequently class 16 from Brian Kelk's "UK English Wordlist
121
with Frequency Classification".
122
 
123
The MWords package was explicitly placed in the public domain:
124
 
125
    The Moby lexicon project is complete and has
126
    been place into the public domain. Use, sell,
127
    rework, excerpt and use in any way on any platform.
128
 
129
    Placing this material on internal or public servers is
130
    also encouraged. The compiler is not aware of any
131
    export restrictions so freely distribute world-wide.
132

147
 
148
  > I was wondering what the copyright status of your "UK English
149
  > Wordlist With Frequency Classification" word list as it seems to
150
  > be lacking any copyright notice.
151
 
152
  There were many many sources in total, but any text marked
153
  "copyright" was avoided. Locally-written documentation was one
154
  source. An earlier version of the list resided in a filespace called
155
  PUBLIC on the University mainframe, because it was considered public
156
  domain.
157
 
158
  Date: Tue, 11 Jul 2000 19:31:34 +0100
159
 
160
  > So are you saying your word list is also in the public domain?
161
 
162
  That is the intention.
163
 
164
The 20 level includes frequency classes 7-15 from Brian's word list.
165
 
166
The 35 level includes frequency classes 2-6 and words appearing in at
167
least 11 of 12 dictionaries as indicated in the 12Dicts package.  All
168
words from the 12Dicts package have had likely inflections added via
169
my inflection database.
170
 
171
The 12Dicts package and Supplement is in the Public Domain.

207
The 40 level includes words from Alan's 3esl list found in version 4.0
208
of his 12dicts package.  Like his other stuff the 3esl list is also in the
209
public domain.
210
 
211
The 50 level includes Brian's frequency class 1, words appearing
212
in at least 5 of 12 of the dictionaries as indicated in the 12Dicts
213
package, and uppercase words in at least 4 of the previous 12
214
dictionaries.  A decent number of proper names is also included: The
215
top 1000 male, female, and Last names from the 1990 Census report; a
216
list of names sent to me by Alan Beale; and a few names that I added
217
myself.  Finally a small list of abbreviations not commonly found in
218
other word lists is included.
219
 
220
The name files form the Census report is a government document which I
221
don't think can be copyrighted.
222
 
223
The file special-jargon.50 uses common.lst and word.lst from the
224
"Unofficial Jargon File Word Lists" which is derived from "The Jargon
225
File".  All of which is in the Public Domain.  This file also contain
226
a few extra UNIX terms which are found in the file "unix-terms" in the
227
special/ directory.
228
 
229
The 55 level includes words from Alan's 2of4brif list found in version
230
4.0 of his 12dicts package.  Like his other stuff the 2of4brif is also
231
in the public domain.
232
 
233
The 60 level includes all words appearing in at least 2 of the 12
234
dictionaries as indicated by the 12Dicts package.
235
 
236
The 70 level includes Brian's frequency class 0 and the 74,550 common
237
dictionary words from the MWords package.  The common dictionary words,
238
like those from the 12Dicts package, have had all likely inflections
239
added.  The 70 level also included the 5desk list from version 4.0 of
240
the 12Dics package which is in the public domain.
241
 
242
The 80 level includes the ENABLE word list, all the lists in the
243
ENABLE supplement package (except for ABLE), the "UK Advanced Cryptics
244
Dictionary" (UKACD), the list of signature words from the YAWL package,
245
and the 10,196 places list from the MWords package.
246
 
247
The ENABLE package, mainted by M\Cooper <thegrendel@theriver.com>,
248
is in the Public Domain:
249
 
250
  The ENABLE master word list, WORD.LST, is herewith formally released
251
  into the Public Domain. Anyone is free to use it or distribute it in
252
  any manner they see fit. No fee or registration is required for its
253
  use nor are "contributions" solicited (if you feel you absolutely
254
  must contribute something for your own peace of mind, the authors of
255
  the ENABLE list ask that you make a donation on their behalf to your
256
  favorite charity). This word list is our gift to the Scrabble
257
  community, as an alternate to "official" word lists. Game designers
258
  may feel free to incorporate the WORD.LST into their games. Please
259
  mention the source and credit us as originators of the list. Note
260
  that if you, as a game designer, use the WORD.LST in your product,
261
  you may still copyright and protect your product, but you may *not*
262
  legally copyright or in any way restrict redistribution of the
263
  WORD.LST portion of your product. This *may* under law restrict your
264
  rights to restrict your users' rights, but that is only fair.
