Create a complete/huge dictionary for aspell.

On Ubuntu 20.04, I'm using aspell as the ispell checker program, which
can be confirmed with `C-h v ispell-program-name RET' as shown below:

ispell-program-name is a variable defined in ‘ispell.el’.

Its value is "/usr/bin/aspell"

I found that too many words are not included in the pre-established
aspell-en dictionary, say this one: destigmatize [1]:

$ aspell dump master | egrep -i destigmatize

For additional information about the packages installed on my
computer, see the following:

$ aspell --version
@(#) International Ispell Version 3.1.20 (but really Aspell 0.60.8)
$ dpkg --get-selections |grep ^aspell
aspell                        install
aspell-en                    install

So, I want to make a complete/huge dictionary for aspell, say, based
on the well known Webster's unabridged dictionary of the English


Any hints for achieving this aim?
