If I'm not familiar with what a package recommends or suggests (ispell
Recommends: ispell-dictionary), I always use dselect rather than
apt-get. That way you get more control over and information about what's
going to be installed. (I imagine one of the apt front-ends like
console-apt or aptitude would do just as well.)
