Yes, I saw this, and I think it is great.  I just wanted to add my
hopes that the definition goes beyond ispell.

In my attempts to create a better Swedish aspell dictionary, I have
switched to an annotated ispell format for my source, and generate
the aspell format by filtering away the comments and piping the
results through "ispell -e" (I think -e is for expand).  According to
the GPL section 3 (, "The source
code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making
modifications to it", and this is the format that I prefer for editing
my dictionary.

.SUFFIXES: .txt .aspell

A dictionary for a new language, and its format, is a treasure that
can be developed independent of the actual spell checking software.
