> Not only WordPerfect 5.1 for DOS, also WordPerfect 6.1 for Windows (and possibly later WP-versions - I didn't check that yet, but I'm going to for Corel WordPerfect 8) has possibilities for creating dictionaries from scratch. You have to download a supplement program, which I at that time did at no extra cost from an official WordPerfect bulletin board. We used it to create a spellchecker for the Frisian language, a minority language used in the province of Friesland, in the northern part of the Netherlands. I haven't found a possibility to create hyphenation files, so in our case I simply used the ones for Dutch, which apart from other benefits frees you from the boring 'Unable to load hyphenation file'-message each time you forgot to disable hyphenation. But if you see possibilities for creating correct hyphenation files, please let me know.
