 Thanks for the pointer,

Looking art my .aspell.en.pws, I see that words have been added in the case 
they were in when I added them.  The Linux Cookbook says that if you want 
them to be accepted regardless of case, make them lower case.  I am not sure 
where that leaves UXBRIDGE, a place name with a capital initial in normal 
text.

HTH your editing.

Where do I look for a reason for this behavior?

Out of my mind:

ToolsSettingsLanguage or Spellcheck or somethingPersonal Dir.

Guenter,

  I don't have a Tools menu; File, Edit, Insert, Layout, View, Navigate,
Document, Help is all I have had. However, ... in
Edit-Preferences-Language-Spell checking I see that no personal
dictionary is listed. However, since aspell is used in other text editors
(emacs, joe), I'm sure it must be somewhere on the system. I'll see if I can
identify the file name.

Thanks,

Rich
