One more question here:

While I right click on the word, there is no menu. I don't know why. I
am using Emacs23 under Windows, I don't know if it is the reason.

After I used M-x ispell-buffer, I add some words into my personal
dictionary. Emacs puts the default personal dictionary at

I don't know what job file "en.prepl" does.

I reset the default personal dictionary by
(setq ispell-personal-dictionary "~/emacs/aspell/en.pws")

But after restart the Emacs, I can't even use ispell.

What's wrong with my last code?
