Under the Filters tab of the Spelling pane in System Preferences choose TeX/LaTeX. You can add environments there and [], {}, [√], {√} for [Optional] or {Necessary} Arguments that DON'T GET checked and GET checked respectively. Note: √ is Opt-V with the US Keyboard. From then on Aspell will know what to do.

As a non-native speaker of English and poor typist I find this frustrating: I can never be sure whether I am making up a non existing word or whether the dictionary is not quite fluent.

If a word you know is correct is marked misspelled you can add it to the dictionary; Ctl-Click the word and use Learn Spelling in the Contextual Menu.

Good Luck,
