Yes. 'aptitude search ibritish wbritish'

    i   ibritish                            - A British English dictionary
    i A wbritish                            - British English dictionary words
    p   wbritish-large                      - British English dictionary words
    p   wbritish-small                      - British English dictionary words

Well, I haven't had any luck with any of the commands to change the default
dictionary. I have everything that is suggested I need installed. For some
reason I don't have a default conf file anywhere though. Strange -- I'll keep
banging away, until I find a solution.

One would think that the dictionary would be the default of the locale
automatically, with minimal user interaction needed. <shrug>
