in reply to detecting the language of a word?

I doubt on are there such kind of dictionary files since you, probably, should allow for all wordforms.
I guess you may check spelling of overall text in certain language and then check all rejected words in other languages.
I believe Text::Pspell could help you if you choise this approach.

    Very complete word lists do exist and are freely available from puzzlers websites like this one where you can get a list of 250,000 words or from the underground hacking sites where thay are used for dictionary attacks on password databases. I will leave it to you to investigate these ;-)
