NAME

       irish - a list of Irish words

DESCRIPTION

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

FILES

       /etc/dictionaries-common/words   is    a    symbolic    link    to    a
       /usr/share/dict/<language>  file.   /usr/share/dict/words is a symbolic
       link to /etc/dictionaries-common/words, and is the name by which  other
       software  should  refer  to  the system word list.  See select-default-
       wordlist(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/french and /usr/share/dict/danish contain  respectively
       lists  of  French and Danish words if they exist.  Such lists should be
       coded using the ISO 8859-1 character set encoding.

SEE ALSO

       ispell(1), select-default-wordlist(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.
