I am trying to use British dictionary with GNU Aspell-0.50.3 (win32) under WinXP.


I've installed English dictionary (aspell-en-0.50-2-3.exe) that includes American, British and Canadian dictionaries, where the default dictionary is American. I am trying to change it to British, but without much luck. Please help!

To specify a value option simply include the option followed by the corresponding option. For example to set the default language to german use ``lang german''.
