using 2 dictionaries at once in aspell in bash


I'm trying to use aspell to correct errors in several text files in bash. My text files are written in portuguese, but it contains english words.

I was wonder if it's possible to use both dictionaries at once on the bash terminal.

The command that I'm using is:

aspell -d pt_PT -c files*.txt
I tried the command:
aspell -d pt_PT,en -c files*.txt
to use both dictionaries. But it doesn't work. Is it possible to use both dictionaries at once?

Marvelous things, those man-pages, are they not?
