## Hunspell Dictionary of English Medical Terms

### Overview

This is a dictionary of English medical terms for Hunspell. It is based on two prominent medical dictionary projects:

 - [MTH-Med-Spel-Chek by Rajasekharan N. of MT-Herald](http://mtherald.com/free-medical-spell-checker-for-microsoft-word-custom-dictionary/)

The two sources have been merged, deduplicated, corrected, and converted into a Hunspell dictionary file.
