Canadian English dictionary words for /usr/share/dict

This package provides the file /usr/share/dict/canadian-english-insane containing a list of English words with Canadian spellings. This list can be used by spelling checkers, and by programs such as look(1).

This is an even larger list than the one installed by wcanadian-huge, and possibly contains invalid words (as well as words that are very uncommon). Nothing prevents you installing both (and others) at the same time.

There are also -small and standard versions of this word list, and there are wbritish* and wamerican* packages as well.

Package version:7.1-1

The Debian English word lists (wamerican*, wbritish*, wcanadian*) and
the Debian "scowl" package are all built from the upstream SCOWL
word lists.  See this package's copyright file for more details
about SCOWL.

The Debian scowl package installs the raw SCOWL "final/" word lists
into /usr/share/dict/scowl/.
See /usr/share/doc/scowl/README
