This package provides the standard, medium-sized American English dictionary,
based on the americanmed+ dictionary supplied with the source for ispell,
with additional words added from the more comprehensive wamerican word
list package.
There are also -small, -large, -huge, and -insane versions of this dictionary,
and there are ibritish* packages as well.
The package also suggests wamerican because ispell's (L)ookup command
needs a word list.
