Seconded; I find it annoying when people do that.

Not to mention he spelled "antidisestablishmentarianism" wrong...

Pneumanultramicroscopicsilicovolcanaconiosis. Best I remember, that's how it's spelled. That's at least how it's pronounced.

As a matter of fact I was checking to see if the spell check recognised the word, so it was a useful comment, you unjust man. Please tell me how you type small

Aaaaaaaaaah ah, interesting.

I wonder if this will also detect grammar errors ...

Oh, seems I've found a bug.

When i write i instead of I, and when I press "change it", it does not change it.

It does not change i into I. =o)

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

I assume its a bug pertaining to the replacement of things like... Doggs are fun! ...to keep the D capitilized.

Yes unfortunately, it also does not recognise many commonly used words. Ha! It does not recognise 'recognise'.

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

user

Not on mine, it suggests 'reckons'.

You must have the more casual spell check, then. :) Just kidding, I was looking at my firefox spell check. Both versions are now valid.

Why does it recognise recognize when we all recognise that it's not recognize?

Looks to be a British thing. From Merriam-Webster:

One entry found for recognise.

Main Entry: rec·og·nise
chiefly British variant of RECOGNIZE

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

So, if British-English language recognises recognise, and if American-English language recognizes recognize, then, I propose that International-English language rekonizes rekonize.

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

user

Oh, you better rekkignize! All right, both proper and improper (I'll let you figure out which is which) forms of the word are now valid.
