Version 2.64 333.9 KiB

V2.64 - 1-SEP-2018
---------------------------

- 14 713 new words.

Added tons of UK names of places plus their possessives.

I know I have spent around four months adding the places names with copy/paste, but since the "databases" were huge, I automatised the process.

It is possible that now near 100% of the UK (at least England) places names are in the speller.

Version 2.63 309.3 KiB

V2.63 - 1-AUG-2018
----------------------------

- 5 101 new words.

Added tons of names of places plus their possessives.
Added tons of common prescription drugs and their possessives.

Version 2.62 327.9 KiB

V2.62 - 1-JUL-2018
---------------------------

- 7 101 new words.

Added tons of names of places plus their possessives.

It is WIP (Work in Progress) since Peter C. sent me a list of English parishes containing around 9000 names.

It will take months to have them added since I am NOT doing it automatically for more accuracy.

Version 2.61 313.1 KiB

1-JUN-2018
-----------------

- 3 656 new words

Places from England/New Zealand:
On V2.61 I included tons of towns.
My scientist friend, Peter McGavin, told me that in NZ they use British, so I decided to do something about it. I did the same for UK. I searched on Wikipedia for "towns", "counties", "villages", etc. and based myself also on:
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_towns_in_England
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_towns_in_New_Zealand
For a more accurate work I should check which towns are already in with the possessives missing. It is in my TO-DO list.
