This is the code Samuel refers to. It is awesome. I use it less and less ;)
by which I mean everytime I use it is one less time I ever have to use it.

(define-key ctl-x-map "\C-i" 'endless/ispell-word-then-abbrev)

(defun endless/ispell-word-then-abbrev (p)
  "Call `ispell-word'. Then create an abbrev for the correction made.
With prefix P, create local abbrev. Otherwise it will be global."
  (interactive "P")
  (let ((bef (downcase (or (thing-at-point 'word) ""))) aft)
    (call-interactively 'ispell-word)
    (setq aft (downcase (or (thing-at-point 'word) "")))
    (unless (string= aft bef)
      (message "\"%s\" now expands to \"%s\" %sally"
               bef aft (if p "loc" "glob"))
        (if p global-abbrev-table local-abbrev-table)
        bef aft))))
