It's a dependency chain. Claws needs aspell, respl. Claws from upstream
has got a hard dependency on enchant. Enchant has got a hard dependency
on aspell and others. Assumed the OP is using Claws, then most likely
the needed spell checker already is installed. Most likely a dictionary
is missing.

I usually install hunspell-en, hunspell-de, aspell-en and aspell-de.

The OP most likely needs to install aspell-en, since "plain" seems to
be an English word. For Debian/Ubuntu and Arch the package is named
aspell-en, this might be different for other distros or operating
