iamerican: An American English dictionary for ispell

 This is the americanmed+ dictionary, as supplied with the source for ispell,
 with additional words added from the more comprehensive wamerican wordlist
 This package also recommends wamerican because ispell's (L)ookup command needs
 a wordlist.

ibritish: A British English dictionary for ispell

 This is the britishmed+ dictionary, as supplied with the source for ispell,
 with additional words added from the more comprehensive wbritish wordlist
 This package also recommends wbritish because ispell's (L)ookup command needs a

ispell: International Ispell (an interactive spelling corrector)

 Ispell corrects spelling in plain text, LaTeX, sgml/html/xml, and nroff files.
 [x]Emacs and jed have nice interfaces to ispell, and ispell works from many
 other tools and from the command line as well.
 No ispell dictionaries are included in this package; you must install at least
 one of them ("iamerican" is the default dependency for no good reason); install
 the "ispell-dictionary" package(s) for the language(s) you and your users will
 want to spell-check.
 It's a good idea to install "wordlist" package(s) for the same language(s),
 because they'll be used by ispell's (L)ookup command.
