Scottish Gaelic Spellchecker (GOC)
An Dearbhair Bheag GOC – a GOC compliant spellchecker for Scottish Gaelic
latest release: 2023-02-21 21:49:16
[There is a small bug in LibreOffice which causes the program to ask you to install an extension again after restarting. You can simply click Ignore if it asks you to install the same extension for a second time.]
This will add a Scots Gaelic spell-checking extension to your local version of LibreOffice. It is based on database behind Am Faclair Beag and contains some 80,000 headwords (i.e. taigh, òl, brèagha...) and rules that handle things like lenition, initial n- t- h-, endings such as -sa, -eigin and so on. As a result, it will spellcheck just over 2.8 million words, making it by far the biggest Gaelic spellchecker to date.
Please note the following:
- This is a GOC-only spellchecker. If you are looking for a Universal Scottish Gaelic spellchecker, please use this version of the Dearbhair Beag.
If you already have Check spelling as you type activated in LibreOffice (i.e. you see red lines appear under mis-spelled words), you usually need to do the following to spellcheck Gaelic:
- Ok. You can now see the suggestions for mis-spelled Gaelic words by right-clicking on an underlined word.
If you haven't got Check spelling as you type activated in LibreOffice (i.e. you do not see red lines appear under mis-spelled words), you usually need to do the following to spellcheck Gaelic:
- Roghainnean cànain/Language Settings
- Innealan-taic sgrìobhaidh/Writing Aids
- Ceartaich an litreachadh fhad 's a bhios tu a' taidhpeadh/Check spelling as you type
- Then proceed as above
If you're using the Gaelic version (i.e. all LibreOffice menus are in Gaelic already), you usually don't have to do any of that to get the spellchecker to work. If you're still using LibreOffice in English, why not give the Gàidhlig version a try?
