  1This English word list is comes directly from SCOWL 7.0 (up to level 60,
  2using the speller/make-aspell-dict script, http://wordlist.sourceforge.net/) 
  3and is thus under the same copyright of SCOWL.  The affix file (only
  4included in the aspell6 package) is based on the Ispell one which is
  5under the same copyright of Ispell.  Part of SCOWL is also based on
  6Ispell thus the Ispell copyright is included with the SCOWL copyright.

 22Alan Beale <biljir@pobox.com> also deserves special credit as he has,
 23in addition to providing the 12Dicts package and being a major
 24contributor to the ENABLE word list, given me an incredible amount of
 25feedback and created a number of special lists (those found in the
 26Supplement) in order to help improve the overall quality of SCOWL.
 27
 28The 10 level includes the 1000 most common English words (according to
 29the Moby (TM) Words II [MWords] package), a subset of the 1000 most
 30common words on the Internet (again, according to Moby Words II), and
 31frequently class 16 from Brian Kelk's "UK English Wordlist
 32with Frequency Classification".
 33
 34The MWords package was explicitly placed in the public domain:

 41    also encouraged. The compiler is not aware of any

 57  From: Brian Kelk <Brian.Kelk@cl.cam.ac.uk>
 58
 59  > I was wondering what the copyright status of your "UK English
 60  > Wordlist With Frequency Classification" word list as it seems to
 61  > be lacking any copyright notice.
 62
 63  There were many many sources in total, but any text marked
 64  "copyright" was avoided. Locally-written documentation was one
 65  source. An earlier version of the list resided in a filespace called
 66  PUBLIC on the University mainframe, because it was considered public
 67  domain.
 68
 69  Date: Tue, 11 Jul 2000 19:31:34 +0100
 70
 71  > So are you saying your word list is also in the public domain?
 72
 73  That is the intention.
 74
 75The 20 level includes frequency classes 7-15 from Brian's word list.
 76
 77The 35 level includes frequency classes 2-6 and words appearing in at
 78least 11 of 12 dictionaries as indicated in the 12Dicts package.  All
 79words from the 12Dicts package have had likely inflections added via
 80my inflection database.
 81
 82The 12Dicts package and Supplement is in the Public Domain.

118The 40 level includes words from Alan's 3esl list found in version 4.0
119of his 12dicts package.  Like his other stuff the 3esl list is also in the
120public domain.

122The 50 level includes Brian's frequency class 1, words words appearing
123in at least 5 of 12 of the dictionaries as indicated in the 12Dicts
124package, and uppercase words in at least 4 of the previous 12
125dictionaries.  A decent number of proper names is also included: The
126top 1000 male, female, and Last names from the 1990 Census report; a
127list of names sent to me by Alan Beale; and a few names that I added
128myself.  Finally a small list of abbreviations not commonly found in
129other word lists is included.
130
131The name files form the Census report is a government document which I
132don't think can be copyrighted.
133
134The file special-jargon.50 uses common.lst and word.lst from the
135"Unofficial Jargon File Word Lists" which is derived from "The Jargon
136File".  All of which is in the Public Domain.  This file also contain

148dictionary words from the MWords package.  The common dictionary words,

150added.  The 70 level also included the 5desk list from version 4.0 of
151the 12Dics package which is the public domain.
152
153The 80 level includes the ENABLE word list, all the lists in the
154ENABLE supplement package (except for ABLE), the "UK Advanced Cryptics
