There are countless dictionaries available for the Hunspell library.

The PPJ Framework includes:

  • English (United States): en_US

  • German: de_DE

  • English (United Kingdom): en_UK

  • Swedish (Sweden): sv_SE

  • Italian (Italy): it_IT

  • French (France): fr_FR

Each dictionary is composed of two files: .dic and .aff files. e.g.: the en_US dictionary has the files en_US.dic and en_US.aff.

Dictionary files must be available for loading in the path. Usually it's better if they are located in the same directory as the executable.

How to download other dictionaries

You can find a dictionary for almost every language in the world here: http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Dictionaries

Dictionaries are downloaded as zip files. To use the files with the PPJ Framework Spell Checker you need to extract the .dic and .aff files from the zip.
