Thank you. I did not know that stuff got installed there. Almost all  
of my dictionary-related questions were answered by reading the files  

/Library/Application Support/cocoAspell/aspell6-en-6.0-0/doc/

It appears that choosing "English (United States)" at the bottom of  
the list was the right thing to do (for me, anyway).
