[en] Latin spelling dictionaries - [de] Lateinische Rechtschreibung

Project Description


This extension integrates Latin dictionaries containing spellchecker and hyphenation patterns in LibreOffice or A Latin thesaurus is not available. The spelling dictionary created by Karl Zeiler may be one of the mightiest available tools for the Latin language. Its vocabulary with more than 130,000 words comprises various periods: archaic, classical, medieval, ecclesiastical and New Latin. Many Greek loan words, mythological names and all standardized forms as well as all alternative forms are included.

Though the dictionary uses classical orthography (ae, Ae, oe, Oe), it also accepts the respective ligatures, all variants of quantity marks and accents. In addition, you can choose between classical spelling mode (u=u, v=v, u=v) and universal spelling mode (u=u, v=v, u=v, v=u). For using the universal mode, navigate after installation to your extension folder and simply copy the la.aff and la.dic file of the “universal” folder into the “la” folder. If you will go back to classical mode, copy the respective files of the “classical” folder into the “la” folder.

The author hopes that his work is a really considerable step towards meeting all your individual requirements. Detecting errors or missing words, please contact the author via e-mail. Many thanks for using this extension.

This extension is also available as bundled version together with Italian dictionaries.


Diese Erweiterung integriert lateinische Wörterbücher für Rechtschreibung und Silbentrennung in LibreOffice oder Einen lateinischen Thesaurus gibt es leider nicht. Das Wörterbuch für die Rechtschreibung, entwickelt von Karl Zeiler, dürfte zu den mächtigsten Tools gehören, die derzeit für Latein zur Verfügung stehen. Der Wortschatz von mehr als 130.000 Wörtern berücksichtigt unterschiedlichste Epochen: archaisches, klassisches, mittelalterliches Latein, Kirchenlatein und Neulatein. Neben vielen griechischen Fremdwörtern und Namen aus der Mythologie werden alle Standardformen ebenso wie auch alle Ersatzformen beherrscht.

Das Wörterbuch arbeitet zwar mit der klassischen Schreibweise (ae, Ae, oe, Oe), toleriert aber auch die entsprechenden Ligaturen und die Schreibung mit Quantitäten und Akzenten. Darüber hinaus können Sie wählen zwischen der klassischen Schreibweise (u=u, v=v, u=v) und der universellen Schreibweise (u=u, v=v, u=v, v=u). Um den universellen Modus zu nutzen, gehen Sie nach der Installation zum entsprechenden Extension-Ordner und kopieren einfach die Dateien la.aff und la.dic aus dem Universal-Ordner in den la-Ordner. Um zum klassischen Modus zurückzukehren, kopieren sie die entsprechenden Dateien aus dem classical-Ordner in den la-Ordner.

Der Autor hofft, dass sein Werk somit auch unterschiedlichen individuellen Bedürfnissen gerecht wird. Wenn Sie Fehler finden oder Wörter vermissen, wenden Sie sich bitte per E-Mail an den Autor. Vielen Dank an alle, die diese Extension verwenden.

Diese Erweiterung gibt es auch als Bundle zusammen mit italienischen Wörterbüchern.
