So far I collected 25000 Malayalam words from Malayalam wiki and blogs. Did the proof reading for 10000 words.
There was a technical problem with GNU Aspell to handle ZWJ, ZWNJ, and ZWS inside Malayalam. Kevin Atkinson(Author of GNU Aspell) proposed a solution for that and it is solved now. Visit http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/aspell-devel/2007-07/msg00000.html
to see the discussion on that.
Thanks to Gora Mohanthy, Praveen for taking up this in Aspell-devel mailing list.

I will release the first version of Aspell Malayalam soon.

Note: I want volunteers for proofreading and word collection. If any of you are interested let me know/send mail to SMC mailing list. Volunteers should be VERY GOOD in Malayalam and should know how to type Malayalam.

Works started to add Malayalam support to Aspell.
Any pointers on good Malayalam vocabulary collection(UTF-8) will be helpful.We Also need documents/info on Malayalam "Sandhi" Rules.
