Description Gareth McCaughan 2004-09-20 21:20:23 UTC
	/usr/share/dict/words is missing a number of perfectly ordinary
	past participles. I'm sure the ones listed below are not the full
	list; they were found while idly looking for words spellable in
	hexadecimal :-).
	
	dabbled
	decoded
	defaced
	doodled
	effaced
	coddled
	cooled
	felled
	faddled
	addled
	
	These are all past participles of verbs that *are* in the
	dictionary.
	
	Also missing, but not a past participle: "beddable", found
	in SOED5 and Chambers. (I haven't any US dictionaries to
	check.)

Fix: 

Add those words. For bonus points, find all the verbs in the
	dictionary whose past participles are missing, and add them.
How-To-Repeat: 	egrep dabbled /usr/share/dict/words
	(etc)
