Spelling Checker Databases

Hi there,

A hint to those of you, who have a unix box aside their lispm:  upload
/usr/dict/words (bsd & sun), which will give you exactly 13435 words
missing from the basic dictionary, among them genera and all the ones I
mentioned in my previous message.

Jon Bentley's Programming Pearls column on spelling checkers, which I
mentioned, appeared in CACM, 28, 5 (May 1985), 456-462. Or see his book
Programming Pearls (Addison Wesley).
