There are many different dictionary files to use. Linux distros come with one, and it's usually stored in /usr/share/dict/words (depends on the distro). There are also some rather large dict files people use to reverse password hashes. You can look on the haxor sites for dict files, I seem to remember seeing some somewhere on cotse, but they're all over the place. And as far as I know, the license on these files are public domain.
