Do you realize how few people use the book of dictionaries anymore?
My daughter kept asking me how to spell words (she's in the 10th grade this year) so I finally told her to look in the dictionary I have next to my desk (I use it all the time).
She had no clue how to use it and then asked how was she supposed to look up a word to spell it correctly if she doesn't know how to spell it in the first place? I told her to sound it out. I spent almost an hour with her teaching her how to use a darn dictionary!
Anyhow, if a word comes up spelled incorrectly in the book, then when you type it in Word, the spell check will pick it up and you can correct it that way.
No wonder so many people do not know how to spell!
