I am using flyspell for the first time. For word with "^" inside, it looks like they are read as two separate words.

For example, below, the word "maître" is underlined, and the word proposed start with "t"

And there

I understood from my first research on the web, that it might come from utf-8 not set for ispell. I tried to change the value of ispell-encoding8-command initially set to --encoding= :

(setq ispell-encoding8-command "--encoding=utf-8" )

but it did not work

Ispell : 3.1.20 Aspell : 0.60.8

  • Can't reproduce this. emacs -q, opened a new text-mode buffer, M-x ispell-change-dictionary RET fr_FR RET. Then I type in Ce que less main de Dieu dans l'immensité sèment ? Est-on maître d'aimer ? pourquoi deux êtres s'aiment, and check the buffer with M-x flyspell-buffer RET. It only highlights the error I've done on purpose to see if it is working at less. – Hubisan Jan 15 at 21:06
  • You are right, I was using another dictionnary francais which might not be complete enough. The fr_FR works well. Thx – user1683620 2 days ago

Just change the dictionnary of ispell like @Hubisan said

M-x ispell-change-dictionnary RET fr_FR RET
