I recently considered different English spelling styles and stumbled over Oxford spelling which is obviously used by many British academic publishers as well as by international organizations, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxford_spelling
It has also been registered at IANA as en-GB-oed (http://www.iana.org/assignments/lang-tags/en-GB-oed)
However, Oxford spelling is somewhat different from what is used in British mass media, especially in usage of -ize instead of -ise, i.e. it differs from the main en-GB spelling.
But, because of different wording origin, the Oxford dictionary keeps -yse as in analyse or paralyse. Hence, neither Aspell's en-GB-ize nor en-GB-ise can be used to check for Oxford spelling. Would it therefore be possible to create an Aspell dictionary variant according to the Oxford dictionary?
There exists an Oxford dictionary file for Open Office, see e.g. http://ftp.kaist.ac.kr/openoffice/contrib/dictionaries/README_en_GB-oed.txt
Thank you for any reply in advance,
