Spell and Grammar Check

Using spell check in Word can prevent errors from appearing. Use the Word XP spell check function to produce error-free Word documents.

Checking grammar as you type

Word puts a green wavy line under possible grammar mistakes.

To work on suspected grammatical mistakes:

  • Place your I-beam over the grammatical mistake and right-click.
  • A menu list displays the following options: bold-faced grammar suggestion, Ignore, Grammar, and About this Sentence.
    • Select Ignore, and Word ignores the grammatical mistake it believes to exist.
    • Select Grammar, and the Grammar dialog box appears.
    • Select About this Sentence, and the Office Assistant will offer you reasons as to why Word believes this to be a grammatical error.
