  • :-)
    I use Google! If I have trouble with a word and don't have spellcheck, I'll just type it into Google. If it's spelled wrong, Google will say "did you mean _________".

  • We use the "Webster's American Dictionary" or the "Merriam-Webster Dictionary of English Usage!" LOL

  • Well, the only differences that I really know of are s instead of z (ie realize and realise) and our instead of just or (ie favourite, colour vs favorite, color)

    If I am unsure of a spelling, I just go to dictionary.com or use spell check.

  • I'm American, so I would use an American dictionary.
    But honestly if I don't know how to spell a word I use Google.
