Proposal Open Office Roman Dictionary ?
#1
I'm currently typing up some ramblings for my website and getting really fed up with the spell checker highlighting every other word (Germanicus, Germanians for example)

I hope this is the right place to post, but was thinking if we could pull together a list of Roman and Greek words we could save these down to a file and use it as a custom dictionary in open office.

Well i think you could narrow it down a fair bit such as

Names of places
Names of People
Military Terms
etc etc

and yeap it would be a lot of work! but isnt that one of the great things of the internet ?

Hi Chance,
Sounds like a useful idea for classicists. One wonders if there's really nothing like that available already.

There are plenty of electronic sources for words, so copy and paste into the dictionary list? If one person took A, another B, etc, etc.

That'll work, but we can host it right here on Romanarmy.com too. I could give you and whoever wanted to cooperate rights to add/edit/publish stuff on the site.

I do grow tired of Open Office getting upset with me when ever I type up anything Roman. This would be a great thing to have.

I think this is a good idea. I was copy-editing something on fortifications the other day and my pc kept trying to change castrae to castrate, which completely ruined the meaning!
