Chapter 13. Checking Spelling and Grammar > Spell-Checking a Document

Spell-Checking a Document

As you type, Word checks your spelling by default. Word uses a red squiggly line to underline any words it doesn’t find in its dictionary. This doesn’t necessarily mean the word is wrong; Word just can’t find it.

Word makes some corrections on its own. These corrections are defined in the AutoCorrect entries, which are covered in more detail later in this chapter, in the section “Using Automatic Spell-Checking: AutoCorrect.” For now, you just need to understand that Word fixes some of your typos as you go along. For example, if you type spellling, Word automatically changes it to spelling.
