I've posted a similar issue [1]. Here I give my some further tries and
testings as described below.

I've created a [personal
which has the following contents:

$ cat ~/.aspell.en.pws
personal_ws-1.1 en 2
This time, the expected word really appread in the correct ispell's
popup dropdown menu, as shown in the attachment. But I still can't
