1 Version 7.1-0
4 README file for en_US and en_CA Hunspell dictionaries
6 These dictionaries are created using the speller/make-hunspell-dict
7 script in SCOWL, version 7.1 released on January 6, 2011.
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.
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:
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 <email@example.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.
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".
56 The MWords package was explicitly placed in the public domain:
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.
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.

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>
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.
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
91 Date: Tue, 11 Jul 2000 19:31:34 +0100
93 > So are you saying your word list is also in the public domain?
95 That is the intention.
97 The 20 level includes frequency classes 7-15 from Brian's word list.
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

140 The 40 level includes words from Alan's 3esl list found in version 4.0

145 in at least 5 of 12 of the dictionaries as indicated in the 12Dicts
146 package, and uppercase words in at least 4 of the previous 12

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.
153 The name files form the Census report is a government document which I
154 don't think can be copyrighted.
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.
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.
166 The 60 level includes all words appearing in at least 2 of the 12
167 dictionaries as indicated by the 12Dicts package.
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.
175 The 80 level includes the ENABLE word list, all the lists in the
176 ENABLE supplement package (except for ABLE), the "UK Advanced Cryptics
177 Dictionary" (UKACD), the list of signature words in from YAWL package,
178 and the 10,196 places list from the MWords package.
180 The ENABLE package, mainted by M\Cooper <firstname.lastname@example.org>,
181 is in the Public Domain:
183 The ENABLE master word list, WORD.LST, is herewith formally released
184 into the Public Domain. Anyone is free to use it or distribute it in
185 any manner they see fit. No fee or registration is required for its
186 use nor are "contributions" solicited (if you feel you absolutely
187 must contribute something for your own peace of mind, the authors of
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
191 may feel free to incorporate the WORD.LST into their games. Please
192 mention the source and credit us as originators of the list. Note
193 that if you, as a game designer, use the WORD.LST in your product,
194 you may still copyright and protect your product, but you may *not*
195 legally copyright or in any way restrict redistribution of the
196 WORD.LST portion of your product. This *may* under law restrict your
197 rights to restrict your users' rights, but that is only fair.
