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 green wavy line. In addition,
you can use Word’s Spelling and Grammar
check features to review your document for
spelling and grammatical errors. (Of course,
these features are no substitute for good
proofreading with your own eyes. They can
catch some errors, but not all!)
