I want to create some sort of spell checking program for German language, for which i need a database with all the words and their gender description(only their gender description) to cross reference every word.

Can anyone help me to find such database to download? i would like if it would be in rows and columns so i can later then import it into a sql database in order to use it more easily

If you are using the R language, then you could try to use the hunspell package: https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/hunspell/vignettes/intro.html

Since it is open-source, maybe you can extract the data you want for your project.

The German language has 3 genders for nouns: Masculine, Feminine, Neutral. Unlike English which has one article "The", German has many articles change based on the grammatical case. Nominativ, Akkusativ, Dativ, Genitiv! ... It's a long story :D

You can read more about German nouns here

Anyway, in German, this is not the best way to determine the noun gender, there are other rules that make it easy to guess.

Dict.cc version (About 334,000 words): You can download data set from dict.cc, you can find more information about this data set on the following URL:

  • yeah.. frankly I speak German and that's the reason why I wanted this kind of database, I just needed to have their gender in nominativ only and later on working on perfecting the program. Thank you for your help – E.K Jul 21 at 8:41

  • Do you have any smaller/simpler resource? Because for speed rate purposes I see this file has a lot of unnecessary and a file with only the noun + gender would be much more preferable – E.K Jul 21 at 9:23
