Dictionaries and Word Lists This is where to download the dictionaries and word lists we have received and processed. Note that often the data for a particular language exists in more than one form: the original document may be a word processor file, but CBOLD may have created a FileMaker database on the basis of the original document. The quality of these data sources varies. Some are in excellent condition for doing online research while others are scanned dictionaries which we have proofread but not completely processed.
