I rely on this dictionary link: http://www.onelook.com/
Another one of my favorite word tools is the reverse look up dictionary at
http://www.onelook.com/reverse-dictionary.shtml
Same basic website, only with a twist.
In my favorites I have a folder just for my 'word' tool sites. Very handy.

Yes it's difficult to ave a dialogue with someone when they analyse the colour of your spelling I guess that gives you licence to spell words either way on a forum like this. Whether you recognised that recognised is spelt differently from recognized is probably not going to bother too many people.

Here's another link for a firefox spell-checker
aspell and it works with more recent versions of firefox.
It does recognise UK English if you set the dictionary setting, I don't know if UK English is the same as Aussie though.

I guess different spellings arise from the fact the States no longer speak the Queen's English. We now wallow in the president's English.

Increasingly few people in England speak the Queen's English. It's one resaon for maintaining the Monarchy - not to lose yet another dialect from the world stage. :mrgreen:

Neh! It was that moron Webster who decided to 'rationalise' American spelling. A lot of otherwise smart people have also thought this was a good idea... :roll:

This came into my inbox a shrot while agao.
This is a short poem made up entirely of actual quotations from George W. Bush.

These have been arranged, only for aesthetic purposes, by Washington Post writer, Richard Thompson. A wonderful Haiku poem like this is too good not to share.


MAKE THE PIE HIGHER

I think we all agree, the past is over.
This is still a dangerous world.
It's a world of madmen and uncertainty
And potential mental losses.

Rarely is the question asked
Is our children learning?
Will the highways of the Internet
Become more few?

How many hands have I shaked?
They misunderestimate me.
I am a pit bull on the pant leg of opportunity.

I know that the human being
And the fish can coexist.
Families is where our nation finds hope,
Where our wings take dream.

Put food on your family!
Knock down the tollbooth!
Vulcanize society!
Make the pie higher!
I am the Decider!
