When posting here, I use the word "stroke" a lot. When I spell check my post, "stroke" is flagged. Suggestions include "strokes", "stroke's", and "upstroke" (but no downstroke?). "Stroking" is also not flagged. Why is just plain "stroke" flagged? Can I add it to the spell check dictionary?

This spell check lexicon leaves a lot to be desired.   Rarely a day goes by that I don't encounter at least one missing word.

Bonafide,

Captcha,

Non-sequitur,

Pixelated,

Stroke,

Stylesheets,

Uninstall,

Vibrance,

Workflow.

 

I could go on but you get the idea...

Can I add it to the spell check dictionary?

By @Semaphoric

 

No, you can't add words to the forum's spell checker, but try posting in the Back Room. If words can be added, only staff would have the rights to do it.

It's easy enough to ignore it, so not a real problem. It's more of a "Oh, come on, now!"

I use Language Tools. It works even (not perfect, but still) on my iPad.

And it corrects multiple languages, not only English. The only thing that does not work is when you mix languages. https://languagetool.org/

 

This is a superior alternative to the built-in dictionary.

By @Nancy OShea

The browser built-in spellchecker works with them. Well, at least with Twitter “Y did they changed the name to X?”.

😕

1. Elon Musk is nuts.

2. Elon is obsessed with X brand even though he doesn't haven't exclusive rights to it.

3. Elon is trying to kill Twitter.

4. All of the above.

By @Nancy OShea

Musk should have bought XeroX. Plenty of Xes. XeXla is not a good name.

 

3. Elon is not perfect. But he's not bad at trying.
