Just as a small tip, I noticed that when you call pspell_new multiple times, php does not free memory usage when the resource is destroyed, but only when your entire script has completely finished. So if you create a pspell_link resource and you intend to use it again somewhere else, instead of calling pspell_new again, keep track of your original pspell_link resource instantiation, and use it again, your script will run much more efficiently.
I was switching between 16 dictionaries by just calling a new pspell_new everytime, my memory usage on the server grew until i hit a failure/php core dump. :-/ So i stored each pspell resource in an array keyed by language, and checked if the resource existed first, before creating one if needed.
I hope that helps someone.

pspell_new — Load a new dictionary
$mode= 0 ]]]] )
pspell_new() opens up a new dictionary and returns the dictionary link identifier for use in other pspell functions.
For more information and examples, check out inline manual pspell website:» http://aspell.net/.
The language parameter is the language code which consists of the two letter ISO 639 language code and an optional two letter ISO 3166 country code after a dash or underscore.
The spelling parameter is the requested spelling for languages with more than one spelling such as English. Known values are 'american', 'british', and 'canadian'.
The jargon parameter contains extra information to distinguish two different words lists that have the same language and spelling parameters.
The encoding parameter is the encoding that words are expected to be in. Valid values are 'utf-8', 'iso8859-*', 'koi8-r', 'viscii', 'cp1252', 'machine unsigned 16', 'machine unsigned 32'. This parameter is largely untested, so be careful when using.
The mode parameter is the mode in which spellchecker will work. There are several modes available:
PSPELL_FAST- Fast mode (least number of suggestions)
PSPELL_NORMAL- Normal mode (more suggestions)
PSPELL_BAD_SPELLERS- Slow mode (a lot of suggestions)
PSPELL_RUN_TOGETHER- Consider run-together words as legal compounds. That is, "thecat" will be a legal compound, although there should be a space between the two words. Changing this setting only affects the results returned by pspell_check(); pspell_suggest() will still return suggestions.
PSPELL_BAD_SPELLERSare mutually exclusive, so you should select only one of them.
Returns the dictionary link identifier on success sau
FALSE în cazul eșecului.
Example #1 pspell_new()
$pspell_link = pspell_new("en", "", "", "",
I think the language and spelling parameters differs on different PHP versions and/or aspell/UNIX distributions.
My PHP 5.2.6 Debian ignores the spelling parameter.
For Americans use en_US as language.
For British use en_GB (not en_UK)
For Canadian use en_CA
