    I understand, but you language is English. I am from Norway, and I need the spellcheck. I hate to misspell. Guess I do it from time to time anyway. Sentence is not right, osv, but I guess most here understand what I am trying to say. (Not all the times)

    Try to right-click inside the text area and select the sub-menu "Spell-check options" or whatever it says in your language. There you can set up spell-checking for your needs.

    I would agree that most times the meaning is clear...

    I would also like to add to to the thought by offering a small bit of praise to the people that have
    taken on the challenge of understanding and being able to use a language that is not their native tounge...
    it is no trivial undertaking....

    your written English is generally much better than what many Americans
    will encounter when dealing with young adults here in the States, at least in my experience...

    IMO many young adults here use text messaging shorthand as their primary communication method,
    which tends to spill into their normal, everyday writings....

    which should probably be a little more formalized...

    I meant that in my opinion, young Americans need to remember that
    there is a time for casual use of language, and there is time for more
    "official" or "proper" English usage -- sometimes I notice even the local
    news anchors do not even use proper English words when broadcasting...

    they tend to make use of slang and other local, informal sayings (colloquialisms)
