I am using the default en_GB dictionary that comes with TexStudio. It seems to be identical to the one distributed with OpenOffice here (at least from the filesize). However it seems to miss a lot of words such as forecasted or aggregator.

Is there a more comprehensive one available for download?

I guess you can always add these entries to your personal dictionary and eventually you'll have one good enough... – Mario S. E. Apr 30 '13 at 19:51
If you click on the word with right button and choose always ignore then you will not have the word checked anymore. – Sigur Apr 30 '13 at 22:59
Yes I can obviously add them myself but I wouldn't know if they're correct unless I check them myself online whenever they're highlighted. Its obviously ok to work with, but I wondered if anyone knew of a better one. – jbx May 1 '13 at 15:42

The dictionaries used by TeXstudio are the same Hunspell ones used by many other projects. You could try the 'extended' en_GB dictionaries provided for Firefox/Thunderbird. However, I'm not sure any of these are significantly better/more comprehensive than the standard ones: dictionary work is hard.
