Setswana spellchecker

6 1

This is a LibreOffice spellchecker for the Setswana language, based on a dictionary containing more than 60,000 words.

Project Description

This spell checker is based on a Setswana word list originally created by Profs. Thapelo Otlogetswe of the University of Botswana and Kevin Scannell of Saint Louis University in 2004. It was greatly expanded in 2015, from about 6000 words to more than 60,000, thanks in part to the hard work of volunteer word list editors.
