Lingucomponent was started by Kevin Hendricks to integrate various open source spell checkers into the OpenOffice.org build. With a little prodding from Kevin Atkinson, the author of Pspell (now Aspell), a new spell checker called MySpell was written in C++ that supported affix compression, based on Ispell. MySpell was used to support spell checking in OpenOffice.org 1.x. MySpell has been replaced with hunspell starting with OpenOffice.org 2.0.2. Hunspell builds on MySpell but supports Unicode and adds several other useful features.
