Description Roberto Salomon 2005-12-20 14:22:15 UTC
The following problem happens in pt-BR. Certain verb conjugations require the
verb to be modified and the object to be shown as a suffix preceded by a hyphen.
An example is the verb "abrir" (to open).

The sentence "I tried to open it" is rendered in pt_BR as "Tentei abrí-lo" or
"Tentei abrí-la" according to gender. The verb "abrir" is changed to "abrí" and
the object to "-lo". Spellcheck does not recognize the new form and marks "abrí"
as mispelled while ignoring "-lo" as being part of the word.

Although a quick hack would be to include "abrí" in the spelling dictionary,
"abrí" without the object "-lo" would be mispelled.

Is there an ispell rule that is used in other languages to handle this or a code
change is required?
