Michel Nédélec pointed us to the Breton dictionary used on Desktop: http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/l10n/mozilla-aurora/br/file/default/extensions/spellcheck/hunspell

Would that be enough to add autocorrect to Breton on Firefox OS?

Latin dictionary are stored here https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/gaia/tree/master/apps/keyboard/js/imes/latin/dictionaries
And I have no idea how the .xml files are generated.

Thanks!
Delphine, do you have any idea on who can help us here?

Hi Theo. Kevin Scannell would probably know how to help here. 
BTW we've spoken about working on auto-correction for all locales who don't have it yet, and have defined a list of locales sorted by priorities. Breton is in fact part of it.
Adding Kevin in CC so he can advise here as needed.

I have good data for Breton and can create a frequency list without too much trouble. I'll restrict to words accepted by the spell checker linked above, unless advised otherwise by Michel.

Unfortunately I no longer have time to work on this. Whoever interested should follow

https://wiki.mozilla.org/Gaia/System/Keyboard/IME/Latin/Prediction_%26_Auto_Correction

and convert a dict file and put it to the correct place in the tree. Please also file an compete a bug like bug 1054902 to get the dict file on CDN too.
