This is the git repository for SCOWL (and friends).
SCOWL (Spell Checker Oriented Word Lists) is a database of English words that can be used to create word lists suitable for use in spell checkers of various sizes and dialects (America, British (both -ise and -ize), Canadian and Australian). However, I am sure it will have numerous other uses as well.
SCOWL is derived from many sources under a BSD compatible license. The combined work is freely available under a MIT-like license.
To build simply type:
To build the aspell and hunspell dictionaries (you will need Aspell 0.60 installed):
cd scowl/speller make aspell make hunspell
