>  The project that I am working on involves parsing text and replacing the words in the text with their parts of speech, so I need to have access to a sizable English dictionary, preferably one that is free (or cheap) and freely available.  If anyone knows about such a dictionary, and knows how to tie it in with Ruby, and could let me know about it, that would be great.  If such a add-on was a Ruby gem, even better.
