Check Spelling and Grammar
Word automatically checks for spelling and grammar errors. Misspellings appear underlined with a
red wavy line, and grammar errors are underlined with a blue wavy line. If you prefer, you can
turn off Word’s automatic Spelling and Grammar Check features.
Alternatively, you can review your entire document for spelling and grammatical errors all at one
time. To use Word’s Spelling and Grammar checking feature, you must install a dictionary; see
Chapter 4 for details on downloading and installing apps for Word.
