Dear Caolan McNamara,
Thank you for bringing up this issue.
I am working with the marketing effort for the Swedish market in the
OpenOffice.org community, and cannot garuantee that everything i mention
is 100% true (as this is not what I normally work with).
The domain speling.org is driven by Skåne Sjælland Linux User Group and
has been a central meeting point for linguistic efforts for the nordic
countries. The effort for the different languages there has been alittle
different. Much emailing has been used, with a "digest review" kind of
way. On the Swedish side, there is no development done on speling.org.
DSSO, The big swedish dictionary is a dictionary based on a large list
of words by Tom Westerberg, that did not contain any information about
the words, it's type, inflection, compound information etc. The DSSO has
used that information as a base to work with. DSSO is today using an
intelligent web-based interface to work with, using a file format called
eXtensible Dictionary and has been developed by the DSSO owner in Perl
for the DSSO purpose.
The source available in the XD format.
Contains the source from DSSO, updated manually once a month.
Is updated automatically every 15 minutes from the web interface.
-- Dictionaries --
These are converted versions from XD to hunspell
Source code used for conversion:
(Needs Hunspell's munch)
-- Older --
These files are Aspell, Ispell and Myspell converted files, based on the
sol-1.3.8 (tar.gz) and (zip) files. These are old copies, and I can't
tell if they are updated or not. (Confused by Apaches version number
Hope this helps. If not, please contact off-list and I'll help.
