With the English dictionaries you can click on the dictionary and  
then click on the About this dictionary button and you get some  
information about it. Actually, the list of included dictionaries is  
the most informative item presented. I've only checked off the last  
(US) dictionary and am pretty happy with it. I also have it set to  
skip over (La)TeX commands and that seems to work fairly well. You  
can add new (La)TeX commands to the list and even determine which  
option/required arguments get checked and which are skipped.

Good Luck,
