Hello LibreOffice,
I asked it before, but haven't received a reply yet.

(It makes more sense to revive that old question with a reply to the
thread rather than start a new thread)

I 'm creating a dictionary for the Gothic language, and although I can make a .dic file work, I 
can't make it work together with a .aff file, probably because it's a custom user dictionary, can 
someone help me by explaining how I can test a Gothic dictionary which includes both a .dic and a 
.aff file, we are talking about Wulfilan Gothic here.

LibreOffice uses hunspell for the spellchecking, so you find all
documentation on hunspell's project site:

dic files contains the pattern/stems with the corresponding
affix-transformation rules that can applied to it.
aff filles then states what those rules are.

While there are tools that can make you help create automatic affix
rules, I think esp. when you're starting from scratch creating the
affix files manually might be better solution, as you can take grammar
into account, and not just coincidence that might screw up additional

In any case: the docs from the above URL should cover everything :-)
