A spell checker for Shona (Zimbabwe)
This Shona (Zimbabwe) dictionary is packaged in .oxt and uses the Hunspell format. It is based on the current "standard" Shona orthography. License: GPL.
Release: 1.0 – A spell checker based on the "standard" Shona (Zimbabwe) orthography.
ReleaseNotes: The spell checker is based on the current "standard" Shona (Zimbabwe) writing system - spelling, word division etc. The root word list was taken from the main published Shona dictionaries, while the affix rules (prefixes and suffixes) are based on Hunspell. The spell checker extension was tested in LibreOffice for both Linux and Windows. With minor modifications to the file names, the dictionary and its associated affix file can also function in the Mozilla Firefox web browser and Thunderbird email program.
