I have been searching for a dictionary text file but couldnt find one. I was hoping someone may have made/find one and if they may like to share? I am making a spell checker that gives a small definition of the word is why. So if you can help out that be cool.

I don't know how complete this is, but you can use this one - I've used it before for scrabble-like games http://logos.cs.uic.edu/107/assignments/Prog3TextTwist/dictionary.txt

There's also WordNet if you don't want to distribute a big dictionary with your app.
