ispell - remove word from dictionary?

I am a (non-root) user in a networked environment. I use ispell for spell checking. I have my own dictionary in ~/.ispell_engligh where I have added words I use commonly that are not in the shared dictionary on the network. BUT, there is word in the shared dictionary (which is hashed) that I would like to remove. It's a word I never use, but I accidentally type as a mispelling of another word. Is there any way I can remove a word from the dictionary? I was hoping there might be something I can add to the .ispell_english file to tell it ignore a word in the shared dictionary, but I can't find any information about that. Is there any way for me to remove this word?

Thank you in advance.
