I confirm those are the files I mentioned.

Same for me, and thank you Ricardo for the very comprehensive 
explanations. I'm a Hunspell user rather than a developer, so I learnt 
what I need for dictionary maintenance and I look at more advanced stuff 
as needed.

In Marco's case, he only needs to expand words, so rather than writing a 
full Hunspell replacement he needs to replicate the functionality of the 
"unmunch" tool (a tool that takes the stem, say "love", and computes 
"loved", "loves", "loving" and other derivatives) that can be found in 
the same source package.
