NAME

       british-english-small - a list of English words

DESCRIPTION

       /usr/share/dict/british-english-small  is  an ASCII file which contains
       an alphabetic list of words, one per line.

FILES

       There  may  be  any  number  of   word   lists   in   /usr/share/dict/.
       /etc/dictionaries-common/words  is  a  symbolic  link to the currently-
       chosen /usr/share/dict/<language>  file.   /usr/share/dict/words  is  a
       symbolic  link  to  /etc/dictionaries-common/words,  and is the name by
       which other software should refer to the system word list.  See select-
       default-wordlist(8)   for   more  information,  and/or  to  change  the
       currently-chosen word list.

       The  directory  /usr/share/dict  can  contain  word  lists   for   many
       languages,    with   name   of   the   language   in   English,   e.g.,
       /usr/share/dict/french and /usr/share/dict/danish contain  respectively
       lists  of  French and Danish words if they exist.  Such lists should be
       coded using the ISO 8859-1 character set encoding.

SEE ALSO

       ispell(1), select-default-wordlist(8),  and  the  Filesystem  Hierarchy
       Standard.

HISTORY

       The  words lists are not specific, and may be generated from any number
       of sources.

       The system word list used to be  /usr/dict/words.   For  compatibility,
       software  should  check that location if /usr/share/dict/words does not
       exist.

AUTHOR

       Word lists are collected and maintained by various authors.  The Debian
       English  word  lists  are built from the SCOWL (Spell- Checker Oriented
       Word  Lists)  package,  whose  upstream  editor   is   Kevin   Atkinson
       <kevina@users.sourceforge.net>.
