aspell with more than one dictionary
 
Hello,

I want to check spelling of a text with german and english words, referring to the manpage of aspell it should be possible to use aspell with more than one dictionary, but I cannot find out the correct syntax.
Code:

aspell --add-extra-dicts=en --extra-dicts=en --mode=html  check mytextfile.txt
Error: Expected language "de" but got "en".

exits with error.

Does anyone know if this is really possible? and if yes, how can I do it, the appropriate dictionaries are installed.
Code:

aspell dump dicts
de
de_AT
de_CH
de_DE
en
en-variant_0
en-variant_1
en-variant_2
en-w_accents
en-wo_accents
en_CA
en_CA-w_accents
en_CA-wo_accents
en_GB
en_GB-ise
en_GB-ise-w_accents
en_GB-ise-wo_accents
en_GB-ize
en_GB-ize-w_accents
en_GB-ize-wo_accents
en_GB-w_accents
en_GB-wo_accents
en_US
en_US-w_accents
en_US-wo_accents

Thanks in advance

Markus

I have never tried it, but I think this section of the aspell docs might help.

http://aspell.net/man-html/Working-W...h-Dictionaries

The on-line docs seem to go into much greater detail than the man page.

Hi frankbell,

thanks for the answer.

I had already found additional information in the internet, also the texinfo file for aspell is very explanatory. It seems I'll have to read much more about this program.
