I am writing a large LaTeX document for the first time, and I recently learned how to check my spelling with aspell. My document contains a few names and bits of technical jargon that aspell does not like. For example, I would like to have aspell accept the word 'odometry' in my files.
I'd like to create a list of valid words that aspell can use along with whatever list it is already using to check a word's validity. I'd also like to store this master word list in or near the same directory that contains all of my *.tex files so that I can include it in my git repository.
Can someone provide examples of:
- A correctly formatted file that tells aspell to consider 'odometry' a valid word,
- The relevant aspell command + arguments required to use the above list
My attempt to figure this out led me to create a personal dictionary. Despite trying a few variations of filenames and command args, aspell never changed its behavior to respect this whitelist.
