    I need the dictionary for the spell checker for another program. Where can I find it?

    as in you want to integrate that dictionary into another program - or do you just want to look up words and thesaurus and stuff?

    If the latter, id suggest just using an online dictionary/thesaurus, like m-w.com (merriam-webster site)

    I think they are stored in *.DIC files for Office. Easiest way would probably to get the dictionaries from a open-source project like Openoffice.org or something like that.
