It depends on what ".dic" format you mean.

For example, from the Hunspell manpage:
       A dictionary file (*.dic) contains a list of words, one per line. The
       first line of the dictionaries (except personal dictionaries) contains
       the word count. Each word may optionally be followed by a slash ("/")
       and one or more flags, which represents affixes or special attributes.
       Default flag format is a single (usually alphabetic) character. In a
       Hunspell dictionary file, there is also an optional morphological field
       separated by tabulator. Morphological desciptions have custom format.

Oh, for your case, you may want to read the section entitled
"Morphological analysis" in the link I posted above.

Can you help with this problem?
