How do I get full ownership for the following file?
I need to extract an AbiWord dictionary to that folder and it says I don't have permission to do so.

you could extract the file with a sudo and that would put all the contents there.
sudo tar -xvf /path/filename.tar
or change the directory permissions and all subdirectories of AbiSuite.
(not a good security practice.)
sudo chmod -R 777 /usr/share/AbiSuite-2.4
then extract the to the dictionary directory.
