Thank you very much for your advice.

First, this gives me hope that I will be able to make it work
with the Russian dictionary.

BTW, do you know if there is a German dictionary around?

However, in a book about UNIX I read that there are very simple
spell checkers that are not interactive, but just read text and
make a list of words that were not found. I would prefer such.
Do you know where I could take one?
