Chapter 9. Proofing and Printing Documents > Adding to the Spelling Dictionary

Adding to the Spelling Dictionary

The Word dictionary contains a good selection of common word choices, but it is by no means a comprehensive reference of the English language. You will need to add words that the dictionary does not recognize, including proper names that you use frequently, so that Word doesn't identify the words or names as errors. When you spell a word that Word thinks is misspelled, it selects the word with a red wavy underline. Custom dictionaries are appropriate when you are doing a lot of work in a specific field and you would like Word to automatically recognize and spell check terminology associated with that field.
