Modify and Add entries to dictionary

   Finally I haven't yet implemented this function because of the difficulties to asset scientifical grounds. Moreover there is an actual french research program to create a Permanent Dictionary of Ancient Egyptian directed by Dimitri Meeks/Frédéric Servajean (Dictionnaire Permanent de l'Egyptien Ancien - DPEA). More people, more money, better brains ! It will be much better than what I could achieve. Therefore this part of my work is sadly no more a priority.



= any number for Gardiner code.

* E+ will return all words ending with a cat.E glyph. (Mammals).
* E1+ same, but with a cat.E glyph from E10 to E19.
