There may be other reasons for errors.  We can't say for sure because we
can't determine the language of the checked word.  (Well, we could add
a package for automatic language identification at some point later :-)

`ispell-region' solves this problem by saying in its message which
dictionary has been used for spell-checking, e.g.

  Spell-checking region using aspell with default dictionary...done

The same could be done for `ispell-word' as well:

  Error checking word 台灣跨性別 using aspell with default dictionary

So users will see enough information to figure out what's wrong:
