American English dictionary words for /usr/share/dict


This package provides the file /usr/share/dict/american-english-insane containing a list of English words with American spellings. This list can be used by spelling checkers, and by programs such as look(1).

This is an even larger list than the one installed by wamerican-huge, and possibly contains invalid words (as well as words that are very uncommon). Nothing prevents you installing both (and others) at the same time.

There are also -small and standard versions of this word list, and there are wbritish* and wcanadian* packages as well.
