NAME

       french - a list of french words

DESCRIPTION

       /usr/share/dict/french  is  an  ASCII file which contains an alphabetic
       list of words, one per line.

FILES

       /etc/alternatives/dictionary    is    a    symbolic    link    to     a
       /usr/share/dict/<language>  file.   /usr/share/dict/words is a symbolic
       link to /etc/alternatives/dictionary, and is the name  by  which  other
       software   should   refer   to  the  system  word  list.   See  update-
       alternatives(8) for more information.

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

SEE ALSO

       ispell(1),  update-alternatives(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.
