-English hunspell dictionaries
+In this package are five dictionaries of English usage - Australian,
+Canadian, United States, and two forms of British English.
+The reason I've included two forms of British English dictionaries are:
+1. The -ise suffix is more commonly used by British speakers and all
+other forms such as en_DK, en_IE, en_IN, etc are symbolic links to
+2. the en_GB-ize/en_GB-oxendict which uses the -ize suffix is known
+as Oxford English Dictionary Spelling and is generally favored for
+academic, formal, and technical writing.
