NAME

       manx - a list of Manx Gaelic words

DESCRIPTION

       /usr/share/dict/manx  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.
