Don't think you need to do anything with that dictionary. It appears that the the dictionaries used with CocoAspell are in /Library/Application Support/cocoAspell.

If CocoAspell is working I'd stay away making changes that aren't needed.

Just looked at the CocoAspell.pkg and it installs aspell, etc., in /usr/local/bin as well as other files in /usr/local/etc, .../include, .../lib and .../share plus other files in /Library/Application Support and /Library/PreferencePanes.

Good Luck,
