Alex Carver | 3885 comments I'm sure this has happened to everyone, but I just typed a word that MS Word ddin't understand. I thought it might be fun to start a collection of such words, and what Microsoft thinks we meant to type.

My word - Withering

Suggestions - Witherspoon, blithering, dithering, herring and mothering

Amy Hamilton | 2560 comments I need a new copy of Word. Mine doesn't know whether to spell check in UK English, US English or Clotochean Claraac Hiss. (I made that last one up. Can you tell?)

Alex Carver | 3885 comments I've had that issue so many times, Amy, you have no idea how much it bugs me when it switches dictionary

Amy Hamilton | 2560 comments Both the dictionary and the thesaurus are on US English and need to be manually changed to UK English on every document and every time I open Word and nothing I do seems to change the default.
