Yeah, I have thought of both these things. Have hacked a standard file
before, particularly in MS Word. Easily done assuming it is a text file
and not a binary file.
The problem is the binomial. I also thought of the concatenation string
but most of the single characters have been used for have special
meanings in various word processors. Hyphens for example are used in LO
as hyphens and so how would you know when removing the character at the
end of your report is complete, what is a concatenation character and
what is a real hyphen?
In other situations I have used =!= as a joining string but as stated it
is messy and hard to read.

I think i would create a new specialist list and add 2 or 3 words to it. Then look for the file to see what

There are probably much more elegant ways which others will probably go into and they may have good
ideas about combined words too.
Btw i tend to use ' for sarcastic or cynical statements and " for quotes. So
"it 'should' work" = it probably wont work but 'experts' say it will.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Specialty Dictionaries

I saw over the last month discussions regarding special dictionaries.
What became of this?
How easy is it to create special dictionaries?
Are there any resources regarding their construction? I know you can import 1 by 1 but I have
20,000 items to add.
Also are composite words addressed in these dictionaries?
I have need for a dictionary that searches for and matches binomials.
Say, fictitiously, I have a plant called 'Eucalyptus vulgaris', I want the dictionary to see the
binomial not 'Eucalyptus' or 'vulgaris' separately. Both these individual words are quite common
but the combo is unique (i.e. their are multiple eucalypts and multiple species with vulgaris as a
