yum install words

In general, if you want to install /someplace/some/random/file, you can just do yum install /someplace/some/random/file

For Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install wbritish

or

sudo apt-get install wamerican

    It also works for non-English languages, for example sudo apt-get install wfrench or sudo apt-get install wswedish. Jun 29, 2020 at 16:41
