I just wanted to know if there is a good dictionary I can download for the custom LaTeX dictionaries.

I know that I can edit the existing ones easily and use, for example, ones from OpenOffice to start with. But having to add all the standard mathematical terminology seems like a drag.

Is there a custom dictionary available out there that has most of the standard mathematical terms in it?

  • Which tool do you use for spell-checking? The built-in tool for a particular editor? Or some aspell/ispell-related tool? Nov 14, 2014 at 14:38
  • Sry for the the late replay. I use the build in one. I am just looking for a simple dictionary file.

  • MIktex. It has the .dic text files as dictionary, also found for open office. It is very easy to edit and indeed I once tried to just add all the math-vocabuary myself. Problem is that I lost that file and was wondering if someting like that didnt float around somewhere on the web, since it does seem pretty useful.

I found none, so I started creating one while writing my thesis. Please contribute the words that you're using in your math papers!
