This extension provides tibetan spellchecking at syllable level (not composed words).

Project Description

This package provides a tibetan spell-checker (with the hunspell format).


The syllables present in the files are those present in the Bod rgya tshik mdzod chen mo dictionnary, excepting the syllable not conform to standard tibetan grammar rules, so Sanskrit translitteration is not included.

Tibetan Grammar rules have been taken mainly from:

  • Manuel de Tibétain Standard by Nicolas Tournadre
  • Le clair mirroir by Kesang Gyurmé, translation of Nicolas Tournadre
  • The Illuminator Dictionnary by Tony Duff
  • the THDL
  • An Introduction to the Grammar of the Tibetan Language by Chandra Das, available on archive.org

The bo.dic file is in alphabetical order (as presented by Mr Chilton), and could be used as a reference.

Limitations and Bugs

Some very common words of sanskrit translitterations are not present but might be in the near future, words like པ་དྨ་ or ཀརྨ་. Only single syllables are considered, not words with multiple syllables. This could be added, and might be soon, but will only work if syllables of the same word are separated by non-breaking tsheg (U0F0C) instead of tsheg (U0F0B), which is something I have never seen anyone use. If you find a bug, please file a bugreport on github.

Responsible Persons

The main work (syllable validation against grammar rules and alphabetical order) have been done by Xavier Faure, and this packaging by Elie Roux. The bo.dic file is automatically generated by dchars.


The icon files have been generated from a free SVG file and are thus in the Public Domain (as stated here). This work and the derived files are under the Creative Commons CC0 license, which is as close to public domain as possible in the country of the authors. See the full text or the FAQ.
