hello Mr. Troeger,

that's so cool!!

It would be good to add some kind of text below in 
https://plugins.geany.org/spellcheck.html, so other users are informed 

Personal dictionary words
Previously added dictionary words can be found in those files. Words can 
be added there, changed and deleted directly in any editor.

With kind regards
