Interesting idea..perhaps your own dictionary that you can fill with words you use that might be spelled diffrenetly than common US terms?

Yeah, I sometimes use the term "colour" and it says I misspelled it, even though i know it's correct.

Some words from around here are said to be misspelled too-for example, frappe. I mean, that is spelled right, but it's said it's not! And milkshake, which is what New Yorkers call frappes, is not underlined in red.

If you right click it, I think there's an option to add it to your built in dictionary. I'm using a Mac and when something is underlined in red and I know it's right, I right click and choose "Learn Spelling", which means that the word is now added to the built in spell check

WI doesn't have a "dictionary". It's your browser that is telling you if it thinks the word is spelled correctly or incorrectly. You need to add those words to the dictionary on your computer that is associated with the browser you are using.

That makes perfect sense...the spelling corruptions actually originate from our own computers. Sorry we blamed you !

I think that maybe all of our right spellings should be added into the dictionary here on WI *NOTE, i do add it to the dictionary, but it still says its spelling wrong* Because there are more than one way of spelling it.
I live in Canada,so therefor I usually spell things the Canadian way,and it bugs me when it says I spelled the word wrong.

I use Safari for WI so I also know I spell a word wrong when I see the red line.

Default Re: Favorite and Favourite? Color and Colour?

That's a good idea! But there are different types of spelling it..I don't see why colour should be 'wrong' when color isn't! There are different spellings for different countries and languages!
