I am breaking my ms-word dictionaries down into smaller chunks. I now have
these dictionaries:

Two "system" dictionaries:

The User Dictionary (default location for newly added words - ideally kept
A Spelling Exceptions dictionary

User dictionaries:

Jargon, Slang, Abbreviations, Company (for words specific to our company),
Commercial, Mundane and Names (for people, places, roads etc).

Does anyone have any others they would use? Is this list too big or too
small? Does anyone else have multiple custom dictionaries and how are they
