I'm coming from Windows and Linux world, so don't be too harsh :-)

Is it possible to develop a spelling dictionary and grammar support for unsupported languages?

Is there any documentation available? After some searching, I didn't find anything useful.

MacOS can normally use any dictionary file available for OpenOffice and its relatives. Here is one source. These come from Hunspell.

On the topic of spelling, you could start further research at https://www.cs.hmc.edu/~geoff/ispell.html. That will provide you a list of dictionaries for already-supported languages, and a framework for developing your own. I'd suggest that ispell is fairly well regarded, but is not the only spelling system for macOS/Unix.

As for grammar, a whole other kettle of fish that is.

  • Not really, but there is a related Linguistics site which has some material on computational linguistics you might start with. Nov 9, 2021 at 15:41
  • Tnx. I didn't find anything. Do you have a link? Otherwise, I will ask there from scratch. Nov 11, 2021 at 8:55
