Re: New Spelling Checker
I only discovered this feature a couple of minutes ago and I think it is great. I am not sure I will use it much myself, though. The reason is, I am not a native speaker of English and my English is pretty distinctly British English (BE) but of course with some Swedish accent and more mistakes than most Brits. I consciously try and keep my English BE - not that there is anything bad about AE, but it is not how I speak the language. AE spelling matches my BE pronounciation very badly.This AE spell checker would push my written English in a direction I do not like.
I feel a bit bad about being a non-native speaker refusing to use this excellent tool which certainly would make my posts easier to read - when reading old posts of mine I realise I make a lot of mistakes, much more than I do on web forums in my own language. Asking Jun for a separate BE dictionary complemented with aikido terminology might be a bit over the top, so I am not asking for it. How many more people like me there are on the forums who would use a BE spell checker but not one that uses an AE dictionary, I do not know.
