Anyone got a plaintext dictionary file?

Need one for a project - one word per line.

I've got a couple, one based on an old Websters of about 220k words, another of the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary with about 120k words (UK spelling). Neither of them are particularly modern, so there will be some technical stuff (eg. computer-related) which won't be in there.

You're welcome to them if you want, or I can search around my bookmarks to find out where I originally downloaded them from (I'm 100% certain they are public domain).

Jake, try the 'Wordnet' database.

Let's not forget good old
/usr/dict/words. Or /usr/share/dict/words, depending.
