  • Last Updated : 03 Jun, 2020

Enchant is a module in python which is used to check the spelling of a word, gives suggestions to correct words. Also, gives antonym and synonym of words. It checks whether a word exists in dictionary or not.

enchant.Dict()

enchant.Dict() is an inbuilt method of enchant module. It is used to create a Dict object, which is the most important object in the enchantt module. The Dict object represents the dictionary of a particular language.

Syntax : enchant.Dict(tag)

Parameter :
tag : the code of the language dictionary(optional)

Returns : a Dict object

Example 1 :




# import the enchant module
import enchant
  
# dictionary of en_US
d = enchant.Dict("en_US")
  
# the dictionary tag
tag = d.tag
print("The dictionary tag is " + tag)
The dictionary tag is en_US

Example 2 : When the enchant.Dict() method is executed without passing any parameter in it, it by default takes the the code of the language of the local machine.




# import the enchant module
import enchant
  
# instantiating the dictionary 
# without passing any parameter
d = enchant.Dict()
  
# finding the dictionary tag
tag = d.tag
print("The dictionary tag is " + tag)
The dictionary tag is en_IN

Example 3 : The enchant.Dict() method may fail if the appropriate dictionary is not available. In that case the following message is printed:
