    1 Version 7.1-0
    2 2011-01-06
    3 
    4 README file for en_US and en_CA Hunspell dictionaries
    5 
    6 These dictionaries are created using the speller/make-hunspell-dict
    7 script in SCOWL, version 7.1 released on January 6, 2011.
    8 
    9 The NOSUGGEST flag was added to certain taboo words.  While I made an
   10 honest attempt to flag the strongest taboo words with the NOSUGGEST
   11 flag, I MAKE NO GUARANTEE THAT I FLAGGED EVERY POSSIBLE TABOO WORD.
   12 The list was originally derived from Németh László, however I removed
   13 some words which, while being considered taboo by some dictionaries,
   14 are not really considered swear words in today's society.
   15 
   16 You can find SCOWL and friend at http://wordlist.sourceforge.net/.
   17 Bug reports should go to the Issue Tracker found on the previously
   18 mentioned web site.  General discussion should go to the
   19 wordlist-devel at sourceforge net mailing list.

   21 COPYRIGHT, SOURCES, and CREDITS:
   22 
   23 The en_US and en_CA dictionaries come directly from SCOWL (up to level
   24 60) and is thus under the same copyright of SCOWL.  The affix file is
   25 a heavily modified version of the original english.aff file which was
   26 released as part of Geoff Kuenning's Ispell and as such is covered by
   27 his BSD license.  Part of SCOWL is also based on Ispell thus the
   28 Ispell copyright is included with the SCOWL copyright.

   30 The collective work is Copyright 2000-2011 by Kevin Atkinson as well
   31 as any of the copyrights mentioned below:

   44 Alan Beale <biljir@pobox.com> also deserves special credit as he has,
   45 in addition to providing the 12Dicts package and being a major
   46 contributor to the ENABLE word list, given me an incredible amount of
   47 feedback and created a number of special lists (those found in the
   48 Supplement) in order to help improve the overall quality of SCOWL.
   49 
   50 The 10 level includes the 1000 most common English words (according to
   51 the Moby (TM) Words II [MWords] package), a subset of the 1000 most
   52 common words on the Internet (again, according to Moby Words II), and
   53 frequently class 16 from Brian Kelk's "UK English Wordlist
   54 with Frequency Classification".
   55 
   56 The MWords package was explicitly placed in the public domain:
   57 
   58     The Moby lexicon project is complete and has
   59     been place into the public domain. Use, sell,
   60     rework, excerpt and use in any way on any platform.
   61 
   62     Placing this material on internal or public servers is
   63     also encouraged. The compiler is not aware of any
   64     export restrictions so freely distribute world-wide.

   74 
   75 The "UK English Wordlist With Frequency Classification" is also in the
   76 Public Domain:

   78   Date: Sat, 08 Jul 2000 20:27:21 +0100
   79   From: Brian Kelk <Brian.Kelk@cl.cam.ac.uk>
   80 
   81   > I was wondering what the copyright status of your "UK English
   82   > Wordlist With Frequency Classification" word list as it seems to
   83   > be lacking any copyright notice.
   84 
   85   There were many many sources in total, but any text marked
   86   "copyright" was avoided. Locally-written documentation was one
   87   source. An earlier version of the list resided in a filespace called
   88   PUBLIC on the University mainframe, because it was considered public
   89   domain.
   90 
   91   Date: Tue, 11 Jul 2000 19:31:34 +0100
   92 
   93   > So are you saying your word list is also in the public domain?
   94 
   95   That is the intention.
   96 
   97 The 20 level includes frequency classes 7-15 from Brian's word list.
   98 
   99 The 35 level includes frequency classes 2-6 and words appearing in at
  100 least 11 of 12 dictionaries as indicated in the 12Dicts package.  All
  101 words from the 12Dicts package have had likely inflections added via
  102 my inflection database.
  103 
  104 The 12Dicts package and Supplement is in the Public Domain.

  140 The 40 level includes words from Alan's 3esl list found in version 4.0
  141 of his 12dicts package.  Like his other stuff the 3esl list is also in the
  142 public domain.

  145 in at least 5 of 12 of the dictionaries as indicated in the 12Dicts

  148 top 1000 male, female, and Last names from the 1990 Census report; a
  149 list of names sent to me by Alan Beale; and a few names that I added
  150 myself.  Finally a small list of abbreviations not commonly found in
  151 other word lists is included.
  152 
  153 The name files form the Census report is a government document which I
  154 don't think can be copyrighted.
  155 
  156 The file special-jargon.50 uses common.lst and word.lst from the
  157 "Unofficial Jargon File Word Lists" which is derived from "The Jargon
  158 File".  All of which is in the Public Domain.  This file also contain
  159 a few extra UNIX terms which are found in the file "unix-terms" in the
  160 special/ directory.
  161 
  162 The 55 level includes words from Alan's 2of4brif list found in version
  163 4.0 of his 12dicts package.  Like his other stuff the 2of4brif is also
  164 in the public domain.
  165 
  166 The 60 level includes all words appearing in at least 2 of the 12
  167 dictionaries as indicated by the 12Dicts package.
  168 
  169 The 70 level includes Brian's frequency class 0 and the 74,550 common
  170 dictionary words from the MWords package.  The common dictionary words,
  171 like those from the 12Dicts package, have had all likely inflections
  172 added.  The 70 level also included the 5desk list from version 4.0 of
  173 the 12Dics package which is the public domain.
  174 
  175 The 80 level includes the ENABLE word list, all the lists in the

  177 Dictionary" (UKACD), the list of signature words in from YAWL package,
  178 and the 10,196 places list from the MWords package.
  179 
  180 The ENABLE package, mainted by M\Cooper <thegrendel@theriver.com>,
  181 is in the Public Domain:

  188   the ENABLE list ask that you make a donation on their behalf to your
  189   favorite charity). This word list is our gift to the Scrabble
  190   community, as an alternate to "official" word lists. Game designers
