Dear Mods,
May we have access to an English dictionary for spell checking ............. please?

I like to: spell tyres with a y not an i; to spell analyse with an s not a z; etc, etc ........ with bucket loads of red squiggles .......

It shouldn't be a major problem ...... could it?????

I think you'll find that the spell-check in question is not a part of the forum software but rather is an intrinsic part of many current web browsers.
Even the English the Queen speaks is not what it once was. Language is a changing, shifting, living thing. In some cases that is particularly unfortunate, especially given the current tendency toward lazy spelling. In yet other ways it's a wonderful thing as it adds so much to the rich flavours of language available.

I'm the first to admit I can be a bit of a stickler and pedant when it comes to written language. And there are more than a few fabulous old words that I use frequently because I'd hate to see them disappear. Use them or loose them as the saying goes.

But if a few wiggly red lines when you know the spelling is correct are the ailment, the problem is rather a tiny one, think you not?

Yup. Was using smart (?) phone and didn't get a chance to re-read and edit before it posted. Love technology. I miss having my keyboard.
