    Default Anyone know where I can get some foreign word lists?

    At the moment I'm working on a word game project for class, and due to the way my architecture is structured it is actually possible for me to make the game multilingual - which is a really cool element I would love to implement. Right now the program is reading the dictionary from a .txt file which has a list of English scrabble words, and all I really need to do to change it to another language is to point it to a different dictionary .txt.

    Problem is, I can't find any other dictionaries. Not free ones, anyway. Pretty much every non-English one I find either requires a license fee to use or demands that I make my game's code open source, which is impossible for me because I'm using the school's game engine. So... anyone know where I could get one of these? It would have to be a language that doesn't require any extra characters(so French and Spanish are okay since I can ignore the diacritical marks, but German is out since I don't have any s).

    Does anyone know where I can get one of these? The format of the word list is simple, and the English one just reads like this:

    aah
    aahed
    aahing
    aahs
    aal
    aalii
    aaliis
    aals
    aardvark
    etc.

    No help finding it, but for German if you don't have extra characters,
    = ss
    = ae
    = oe
    = ue

    Here is a latin one. It's the "Or download the entire Latin dictionary as a file (Zipped text file)" line. Just need to rename it from .raw to .txt for some reason.

    Well, at least, it should work with other languages that use what English considers "letters" and "spelling". And, to be fair, that's really a lot of languages!

    I really wish I knew where to find those sorts of things, man. I'll be watching this thread for resources.

    I thought it just said "Anyone know where I can get some foreign words?"
    And I was about to answer "Well, a foreign language would be a great place to start!"
