Ah, I have remembered now that the [variant] dictionaries are not complete
dictionaries -- they contain only variants of a subset of words from the
main English dictionaries. (Hence they get treated slightly differently
from other English dictionaries in Aquamacs's version of ispell.el, in that
they aren't automatically selected as a default dictionary.) See
the end of the page)
Next steps to take:
1) Please select a standalone dictionary in cocoAspell and we'll go from
there. I have had no trouble with English (United States) [w_accents]. Try
selecting that one alone.
2) Re-start Aquamacs.
3) Use Help-->Diagnose and Report Bug-->Start Aquamacs Without
4) in a buffer with text, M-x ispell
If this doesn't work, let's take this discussion off the list to sort things
out. Check the value of ispell-dictionary-alist; if it's the same flood of
languages (the default ispell list, with no relation to what you actually
have installed!), that gives me a place to start.
