I have recently noticed that the spell checker aspell that comes with
Slackware only has a dictionary for US/UK English.
There seems to be different possibilities to install a french dictionary.
First, there is the french dictionary provided by the GNU project for aspell aspell-fr-0.50-3.tar.bz2
Second, in the past, I was
using the francais-IREQ-1.4.tar.gz
dictionary provided by Hydro-Quebec with ispell. The aspell documentation states that ispell
dictionaries can be imported so this might be a second possibility.
Third, the stardict program included the xmlittre
I have two questions. First, is the GNU aspell dictionary more complete
than the Hydro-Quebec one or is it the other way round ?
Second, in the case of the two dictionaries being too limited, does anybody know whether a stardict dictionary can be imported
in aspell ? The xmlittre dictionary should have at least all late 19th century words.
