I'm not sure if I'm doing it right by sending this mail do l10n, but hopping someone will point me to right direction. Even tried to subscribe to hunspell mailing list, but with no success.

I've done reading Hunspell help/documentation pdf from the internet but still have few questions. From what stands in that document I can't be certain in some specific things which are actually very important when we talk about morphology of highly flective language like Croatian.

Here we go:

Let's say that .aff contain:

FLAG long
SFX Y A1 1
SFX Y 0 a .

FLAG long
SFX Y A2 1
SFX Y A2 0 e .

Now, A1 and A2 needs to be applied to word "jezik" (eng. language). So if .dic file contain "jezik/A1" I should expect forms like "jezik" and "jezika". If .dic file contain entery like "jezik/A2" expected forms are "jezik", "jezike", but if the entery is


I can expect forms like "jezik", "jezika", "jezike", but will hunspell try to combine A1 and A2 together like "jezikae" or "jezikea"? Form "jezikae" and "jezikea" are not valid in Croatian. I know it can be prevented by doing

FLAG long
SFX Y A2 1
SFX Y A2 0 e [^a]

but question is - will hunspell combine (aglutinate) suffixes if suffix statements doesn't prevent it explicitly (and allows it implicitly)? Wasn't able to solve this by reading the manual from nor by looking into other .aff files from git repository.

Also if .dic file contains only form "PDF" will the word "pdf" in LO be underlined as misspelled? Can .dic file contain two words in one line?

Further more - have trouble with understanding the REP section in .aff file. Can I do:

Plitvička_Jezera Plitvička_jezera

will that automatically correct capital letter in word "Jezera"?

I hope someone will give me a hand here...
