       /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

       contain  respectively  lists of English and Danish words if they exist.  Such lists should
       be coded using the ISO 8859-1 character set encoding.
