    Besides, I think that a list of requested words would do better than this Tracker.

    That your for the suggestions. Unfortunately, I can not include every possible word in the English dictionary. The English dictionary is derived from SCOWL, and included all words up to level 65. Most of your suggestions was found in a higher level of SCOWL. More info on SCOWL is available at http://wordlist.sourceforg.net.

    I might consider adding a few of the words in the future (such as poisson), so I won't close this bug report, it would help if you could prioritize and include a justification for wanting the words added.

    "Per se" is common, but it contains a space, which is currently not supported. I may consider adding words with spaces in the future. If you want to make sure this gets in at that time please file a separate bug report.

    Of all the words listed, only locator and poisson are common enough to consider inclusion. To determine this I looked the words up in a very large corpus COCA (http://corpus.byu.edu/coca/).

    Will likely add them.

    And so are many other words. I can not include every possible word in the English dictionary. The English dictionary is derived from SCOWL, and included all words up to level 65. Your suggestion was found in a higher level of SCOWL. More info on SCOWL is available at http://wordlist.sourceforg.net.

    If you fell your suggestion should be an exception to these rules fell free to reopen this bug.

    Hi there,

    That you for the suggestions, however most of those words are not very common and probably should't be in the standard size dictionary.

    For now I am lowering the priority until I get a chance to carefully consider your suggestions.

    Sorry for all the noise, I really should read my own comments before I post new ones.

    Based on the earlier comments I am going to give this a priory of 4 for now.

    Please disregard the last two comments.
