spelling errors?

This is what popped up on my screen yesterday when I opened my typed outline of our lectures.

No, I am not an exceptionally awful typist. Microsoft Word just doesn't recognize any of the words from our lectures. Come onnnnn, hyperphosphaturia is totally a real word!!

Here are some screen shots from another document (also an outline of lectures) that I guess was (probably just barely) under the limit for number of spelling errors to display.

If cortisol is wrong, I don't want to be right.


  1. Interestingly, if you use Pages, it uses the Mac's built-in dictionary which is totally at home with aldosterone, renin, cortisol, juxtaglomerular, angiotensin and synthase.

    weird, huh?

  2. interesting! i've never even heard of Pages, i'll have to check it out!
