That "add to word list" type of thing is what I did to get some of the
words I used for these emails to include in my next version[s] of my big
word list dictionaries.
I think there was about 800 +/- to 1,000 +/- words going to be added to
each list. I have to do some work on the dictionaries to get them ready
for publication. Actually I cannot find the updated lists. They are
not in my "word list folder" so I have to rebuild them, again, or I just
forgot where that folder really is.
Been really busy, so I have not had time in the last months to do the
work needed. Rebuilding them is running the word list files and the new
word list[s] through a package and then changing the .oxt files. That
is 11 current ones, plus one new one. The 638K lists will go to 639K
and there will be one en_US that is over 700K as the new one.
So yes, if someone has a text file of a list of words that are the
CORRECT spelling, I can make a modified dictionary .oxt file to include
those words, either as a separate .dic file in the .oxt file or included
in the en_US, en_CA, or en_GB .dic files.
I could have a 1 million word list, but they are words that have
alternative and rare spellings for many words, and they are not
completely verified. Now having mineral names as will as other science
names/terms [including medical and chemical words] would be good to have
for a larger word list. I think the planned 700K+ list does have US
medical and chemistry words in it.

You know you ca right-click on a word that has a red-wriggle and "Add to dictionary"? Then later in the same document and any future documents that word would be accepted.
The tricky bit would be keeping a copy of your modified dictionary backed-up somewhere. if you can work out how to do that and also send Tim (webmaster@krackedpress) a copy then he could probably work with that to create a specialist dictionary for chemicals and minerals.
I think you can have more than one dictionary loaded at a time and the "Add to dictionary" looks like it is set-up to offer a choice of dictionaries to add the word to. I guess it would be really great for most of us to start our own dictionaries of technical words for whichever area we work in but i haven't a clue how to do that either so i just add to the standard dictionary each time.

Thank you. It doesn't have all the minerals but it does cut down on
the number of terms marked misspelled. And that dictionary will be
useful for other projects.

I have a project to make display labels for a mineral museum.
Does anyone know of a source for a specialized dictionary of
mineral and chemical names that can be used with LO?
Minerals? Well, maybe in the larger ones, but English Chemistry -
try this one.
