I know that there are words and terms that are not included in many
spelling dictionaries. I even found a spelling word list that someone
forgot to add "dictionary" to. BUT, I would like to make sure all of my
.oxt dictionaries have the words/terms we use every day in articles and
email support for LibreOffice and other open source related "items".
I want to make sure these newer terms are included.
So I am asking for people to send to me lists of correctly spelled words
and terms - Off the List - in a text file with one word per line [if
there are a lot of them]. Then I will merge the lists and make sure
they are in the .oxt English dictionaries I will be updating sometime soon.
I could do this alone, but many of LO's users have been working with
open source [and FOSS] longer than I have and you could/should know some
words and terms that are missed in other spell checking systems.
I know there are missing words and terms in this field of computing, but
I would take any word that is missing. I would love to get a hold of a
good list of geology and other scientific terms that may be missed. I
would love to create a specific dictionary to add on to any others with
these specific words and terms in the science and technology field. I
was working on creating a script that would search documents for words
that I do not currently have, but you must trust the spelling of the
documents first. Any word that is sent to me must be spell correctly to
be accepted. Any word/term I do not know will be checked with online
sources for proper spelling.
So would any user like to help with creating a large list of science and
technical words/terms that could be used to create a separate "tech"
dictionary for LO? I was working on it last year, but medical issues
put a hold in that project. I hope to restart it soon. I would love to
have 10 to 20 thousand words/terms in such a dictionary. These words
will be "generic" English terms that are used in English
documents/emails/publications/etc. from the California Coast to the
streets of London. How many of the current products out there have
"FOSS" or other term used today and not 10 or more years ago.
So, any takers?
Do you like the idea of a separate "tech" dictionary [or sets of] for LO?
