If you have read the manual , you can see that there are several=20
environment variables you can set.  In this case DICTIONARY can be set.

ispell uses /usr/local/lib/english.hash for hashed dictionary.
and the dictionary at /usr/share/web2

from ispell(1) :

ENVIRONMENT
       DICTIONARY
              Default dictionary to use, if no -d flag is  given.

       WORDLIST
              Personal dictionary file name

FILES
       /usr/local/lib/english.hash
              Hashed dictionary (may be found in some other local
              directory, depending on the system).

       /usr/local/lib/english.aff
              Affix-definition file for munchlist

       /usr/dict/web2 or /usr/dict/words
              For  the  Lookup  function  (depending on the WORDS
              compilation option).
