for words like:
ispell.el sends to Aspell only part of the word, e.g. "lad" instead of
"ślad", or "kl"/"twa" (depending on the cursor position) instead of

I think this is because wrong value of (NOT-)CASECHARS, which is ASCII
A-z letters and a few chars of which only ó/Ó is valid for Polish.

Although, for some reason, it doesn't recognize "ó" in word "miód",
sending "mi" or "d". It is on the list of CASECHARS under \363, so it
should work.  Moreover, if I type in regexp-builder "[\363\323]" it
won't recognize ó/Ó, but it doesn't have a problem with other Polish
chars, like "ł" ("[\502]") or "ż" ("[\574]").

If I put in my init.el:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq ispell-program-name "C:/cygwin64/bin/aspell")
(add-hook 'ispell-initialize-spellchecker-hook
          (lambda ()
          (add-to-list 'ispell-local-dictionary-alist
                         ;; "[[:alpha:]]"
                         ;; "[^[:alpha:]]"
                         ;; ęóąśłżźćńĘÓĄŚŁŻŹĆŃ
                         "[.]" nil nil nil iso-8859-2))))
(setq ispell-dictionary "pl")
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

everything seems to work, even ó/Ó are recognised. "[[:alpha:]]" works
as well, so I leaved it as an alternative. Changing from iso-8859-2 to
utf-8 doesn't break anything.

Tested on:
- GNU Emacs 26.3 (build 1, x86_64-w64-mingw32) of 2019-08-29,
- GNU Emacs 28.0.50 (build 1, x86_64-w64-mingw32) of 2020-07-05,
with Aspell from Cygwin installation.

I'm therefore closing this bug report.
