5.8 Using Multi Dictionaries

As with previous versions of Aspell you can specify the main dictionary to use via the ‘-d’ or ‘--master’ option. However as of Aspell .32 you can now also:

  1. Specify more than word list to use with the ‘extra-dicts’ option.
  2. Specify special multi dictionaries.

The ‘extra-dicts’ is a list option. To add a dictionary use ‘add-extra-dicts’ or to remove a dictionary from the list use ‘rem-extra-dicts’.

A multi dictionary is a special file which is basically a list of dictionary files to use. A multi dictionary must end in ‘.multi’ and has roughly the same format as a configuration file with the only accepted key being ‘add’.
