Add New Words On Microsoft Word Dictionary In MS Word 2007


In Microsoft Office Word, adding words to the dictionary is pretty easy and there are two ways to do it. First option of adding words to the dictionary is with the “Add to Dictionary” option. This option is available only while you are composing your document and you typed a misspelled word. You will know it is a misspelled word because it has a red markup.

Check the spelling of the marked misspelled word. If you know the spelling is correct, you can add it to the dictionary by right-clicking on the word and select “Add to Dictionary”. This adds the word to the dictionary and removes the red markup on the word. The second option is to add the word to the dictionary manually.

In Microsoft Office Word, click the Office button or “File” then select “Options”. In Microsoft Office Word 2003, go to “Tools” then “Options”. In “Options” window, go to “Spelling & Grammar” tab then under “Spelling” section, click “Custom Dictionaries”. In “Custom Dictionaries” screen, click “Modify”. On the next screen, enter the word you want to add to the dictionary.

Make sure the spelling of the word is correct then click “Add”. When you are finished adding words to the dictionary, click “OK” all throughout and that’s it.
