Spelling
DOES differ sometimes from dictionary to dictionary – so there may be the odd
discrepancy between our accepted spelling, and what you can see if you look up the word.

We have tried to ensure that all accepted spellings are included
in the app, so please let us know if there are any we have missed. Please
include your source when you report a word to us.



Mistakes

Word spelling Posted on 2013-01-19 16:52

While we
have rigourously checked the content in this app for correctness, there is
always the risk of human error, and that a word has been misspelled, or an
alternative spelling has not been included. Either that, or the dictionary
you are using is not one of the ones which we have chosen as being the most
academically correct. Yes, there are discrepancies between dictionaries, and
the app only accepts spellings which we can verify with our own sources.

If
you do find a word which is misspelled, please let us know, along with your
source against which you have double checked the spelling.
