The selected dictionary is “English (United States) [w_accents], which uses data files en-common.rws and en_US-w_accents_only.rws, which are in /Library/Application Support/cocoAspell/aspell6-en-6.0-0.

Do a Spelling Search Edit->Check Spelling (Cmd-;). When you come across a ``misspelled'' word that is, in fact, correctly spelled Right/Ctl-Click on the word to get a list that allows you to correct the spelling but also allows you to tell the system to `Learn Spelling'. CocoAspell really integrates with the Apple Spelling System.
