Misspelled is an interactive Wow chat spell-checker, that watches chat messages you type and highlights misspellings. Any words flagged as Misspelled, can be right clicked to show a list of replacement suggestions.
Misspelled utilizes the HunSpell style, affix (prefix/suffix) compressed dictionaries. The same ones used in Chrome, Firefox, and OpenOffice. Misspelled provides suggestions based on words that phonetically sound like the misspelled word, along with suggestions based on common mistakes of spelling. While Misspelled can detect nearly the same number of correctly spelled individual words as OpenOffice, it's suggestion engine, for a misspelled word, is "somewhat" less complicated, than the HunSpell implementation.
I've included in the US English dictionary are some Warcraft specific proper nouns, including the zone names, and all Wrath/Cata dungeon and raid boss names. Your friends and guild members are also added automatically.
Misspelled includes dictionaries for US-English, UK-English, French, German, Italian, Russian (experimental), and Spanish. The appropriate dictionary, for your game client locale, will auto-load, or you can manually choose what dictionary to use from Misspelled's Interface/Addons options page.
Misspelled works with WIM (Wow Instant Messenger), and is compatible with: Prat, Skinner, Linerator and Chatter.
Note: Spellchecking occurs as you complete each word. The last word in the chat box, isn't spell checked until you type some form of word terminator, either a period, space, or some other word separating punctuation. Spell checking is very fast; but I don't want to check needlessly.
Misspelled is compatible with Wow 6.0.2 If you are having problems with Misspelled, please try updating or disabling all other chat addons you may be running.

r58 - Version bump to update embedded libs.
r57 - TOC bump to 4.0 for patch 4.0.1
r56 - Added some Cataclysm proper nouns to the enUS and enGB dictionaries. (New zone names, dungeons, bosses, Worgen, etc...)
r55 - Wow client v4 compatible.
r54 - Added support for UI localization. Now I just need some help with translations.
"Fixed" compatibility with the addon Gryphonheart Items:
(GHI) Gryphonheart Items begins it's item color tags with a (|C) capitol C (vs the standard |c). I added that possibility to the chat text parsing routines.
r52 - Added itIT Italian dictionary, including Chromium delta words.
r51 - Fixed an error preventing the enGB dictionary from loading. PTR 3.3.5 comparability included (beta). Experimental ruRU dictionary included.
r48 - Corrected a typo in the .toc file. The addon Title entry was mistakenly mistyped. "Mispelled" was changed to "Misspelled". Changing the title, may re-enable the addon, where it has been explicitly disabled.
r47 -Added a UK English (enGB) dictionary. Those wanting to use this dictionary, should uncheck the auto-dictionary selection option, and select the enGB option, then reload. Like the other Misspelled dictionaries, this one was derived from the enGB dictionary included in Openoffice & Chromium. Included in this dictionary are the Wow proper nouns I included in the US English dictionary, including zone names, raid boss names, and a few other Warcraft specific words. Due to the similarity to US English, the suggestion engine uses the same phonetic rules for both dictionaries.
r46 - TOC updated for patch 3.3
r45 - Added UI to show, and allow deletes, of words added to user dictionary. You'll find the "Edit Dictionary..." button, in the Interface/Options area. Reminder: you can add words to your user dictionary, by right-clicking a misspelled word, and clicking, "Add to Dictionary"
r41 - Fixed a version number typo.
r40 - Modified a hook to WIM, needed to remove the highlighting of misspelled words, prior to sending a chat message to the server. The author of WIM is due to add a specific API, just for this purpose, in the next release. Added the following words to the US English dictionary (includes some proper nouns from the patch 3.3 PTR): Frostwing, Sindragosa, Baine, San'layn, Bronzebeard, Valanar, Doomguard, Saurfang, Plagueworks, Highlord, Tirion, Valithria, runeblade, Fordring, Muradin, Putricide, Deathwhisper, Hippogryph, Bloodhoof, Lich, Frostmourne, Wrynn, Marrowgar, wyrm, Skybreaker, undeath, Orgrim's, Dreamwalker, Shadowfiend, Mograine, Darion, Lana'thel
r39 - Added the following new proper nouns to the US English dictionary, many from from patch 3.2 (ToC Instance boss names): Eadric, Thrakgar, Tyrius, Dawnsinger, Jaraxxus, Zul, Skullcrusher, Noozle, Kavina, Runok, Stouthorn, Shaabad, Grimdabbler, Colosos, Harkzog, Gorgrim, Zhaagrym, Wildmane, Val'kyr, respawn, Icehowl, Mokra, Arelas, Zul'tore, Blightslinger, Ruj'kah, Nightfell, Visceri, Misthoof, Brienna, Edyis, Melador, Malithas, Alerius, Gormok, Snobold, Dreadstone, Ametrine, Brightblade, Acidmaw, Steelbreaker, Eressea, Valestrider, Darkbane, Shadowcleave, Whizzlestick, Ginselle, Paletress, Shocuul, Deathstalker, Liandra, Dreadscale, Lightbane, Jaelyne, Shadowstep, Moonstalker, Stouthammer, Lightbearer, Duskblade, Velanaa, Maz'dinah, Stormhoof, Baelnor, Brightstar, Suncaller, Boltspark, Blackwhisper, Irieth, Narrhok, Broln, Grovesong, Birana, Serissa, felhunter, Shaamul, Fjola, Ventrilo.
r38 - Updated .toc file for patch 3.2
r37 - Replaced French dictionary with the one used in Chromium. I included the additional words Chromium added.
Fixed a typo in the UTF8 section of RemovePrefix. This was causing words to be flagged as misspelled, if you were using one of the UTF8 (non-English) dictionaries and the word contained one of the affix compressed prefixes, even though they were spelled correctly.
With these fixes, the word [l'éléphant] is now not mistakenly flagged as misspelled.
r36 - Added a French dictionary. The French dictionary will auto-load if you're using the frFR client, or you can manually choose to use it from Misspelled's Interface/Addons options page.
r35 - Hopefully fixed the issue that was crashing client.
Hooked ChatThrottleLib:SendChatMessage so I can clean any misspelled highlighted words before the message is sent.
r34 - Misspelled now adds spell-checking to WIM chat windows. Please report any issues you have with this new feature.
r33 - Guild members and friends player names phonetic codes were always being generated using the US English phonetic code routine. The generic phonetic code is now used for German and Spanish. Locals added for ipairs and pairs, to WordDict.lua, to increased speed.
r32 - Added 642 additional US English base words and corresponding affix codes. The word list was borrowed from Chrome's additions to the US English OpenOffice dictionary included in their implementation. You can view the words added here: http://src.chromium.org/viewvc/chrome/trunk/src/chrome/third_party/hunspell/dictionaries/en_US.dic_delta
Are you sure "ing" is a valid suffix for the word "YouTube"??? j/k
r31 - Fix an error occurring for new users that were not using a prior version and didn't have a savedVariables Misspelled.lua file.
r30 - Spanish (esES) dictionary support added.
There is a new interface options page, that allows you to manually select a dictionary to load.
Note: if you select a different dictionary, you need to reload the game UI for it to take effect.
Note: Right now, there isn't a separate user dictionary for each language. This will be an issue if you routinely switch dictionaries back and forth.
Suggestions are now generated when you right click a misspelled word. This will speed up edits that occur someplace other than the end of the line.
Many fixes have been applied to the suggestion generation code. You'll notice fewer, better suggesting being returned. In English, Teh is still an issue. Humm....
Support added throughout for UTF8 multi-byte character encoding.
Generating suggestions using on of the UTF8 dictionaries (Spanish and German) takes noticeably longer. If you're using a UTF8 dictionary, two suggestion generation methods (BadChar & ForgotChar) are disabled to allow some suggestion results to return within a reasonable time.
The extra execution time the UTF8 code adds, is compounded by the Spanish and German dictionaries having significantly more suffix combinations that need checking when validating a word is spelled correctly. I'm sure there are additional improvements that can be made here.
Implemented a generic sounds like method to support language dictionaries that don't supply phonetic codes. Currently only Spanish uses this method.
The word "Aldor" was added to the English dictionary.
r25-r27 Capitalized misspelled words will stay capitalized after selecting a replacement suggestion. Long term I want to detect the beginning of a sentence, so I can correct incorrect Capitalization. For now this change should help.
Added these characters to the list of word separators: "(", ")", ";"
The Suggestion ranking EditDistance method's substitution cost, is now case insensitive.
r24 - Changed the misspelled highlighting to a medium-cyan-ish color. Hopefully this will make it easier to see misspelled words in all the common channels: Say, Party, Raid, Guild, Whisper, Trade, Yell
r23 - Added Ace3 OptionDep tag to the .toc so the addon would properly load for those running without libs embedded.
r22 - Now uses AceEvent to replace the hidden frame and OnEvent hook needed to load guild members.
Added the "words" LFG and LFM to the US English dictionary.
When a suggestion is selected to replace a given misspelled word (or Ignore or Add to Dic. was selected), the cursor was positioned at end of the replaced word. Now, if there is a space after that word, the cursor is positioned to the right of that space. This should reduce the spell-checking needed when the only character on the line, to the right of a cursor, is a space.
r21 - Changed some of the frame xlm code, to hopefully hide a phantom dropdown frame that was being reported showing up.
r20 - A German dictionary has been added and will load if you are using the German client. Note: No Warcraft specific proper nouns have been included in the German dictionary.
Misspelled's loading and right-click event wireup routines were converted to use AceAddon and AceHook. Hopefully this should help make Misspelled more compatible with any other Ace addons (Prat), that also try and hook the ChatFrameEditBox's MouseUp event.
Local variables are now widely used to speed up calls to global functions.
r19 - Fix for errors reported loading friends player names into the dictionary.
r18 - Reduced memory needed to store the dictionary in half. Affix keys and phonetic codes are no longer stored using subtables. Memory usage went from 11.6Mb to 5.7Mb
The user dictionary storage format was changed to match the, updated, in memory dictionary storage format. Any existing user dictionaries will be converted the first time you load r18.
Improved the suggestions generation, especially when the word contains a capital letter.
Maximum number of suggestions returned is now 8, not 10.
r17 - No UI or functionality changes. Made some parts of the code more efficient.
r16 - Maximum suggestions increased to 10
Fixed an error where words in all CAPS, or words that contained numbers were throwing a Lua error.
Fixed the chat edit cursor position so it moves naturally as you perform edits in and around misspelled highlighted words. Wow this was a lot of work. Did you know you can crash Wow, with an invalid cursor position!
Fixed a problem where the spell checking routine was firing twice, if it found a misspelled word.
More code cleanup. There shouldn't be any remaining, non reachable code.
We're getting very near release quality!
r15 - The Misspelled word suggestions pop-up dialog now takes up less space. And a "Cancel" option was added to the bottom of the pop-up.
Guild members weren't always loading. The loading guild members routine is now delayed until the first ChatEditBox_OnTextChanged event. I wasn't always getting guild member info during addon loading.
r14 - Fixed error loading guild members
r13 - Your friends and guild roster are now, upon zone-in, added to the list of correctly spelled words. Suggestions that match a friend or guild member player name are flagged with either (Friend) or (Guild), in the suggestions right-click pop-up. Lots of cleanup and remarks added to the code. Fixed cases where editing near the boundary of a highlighted misspelled word would mangle color tag information leaving only partial color tags. Started implementing routines to correctly set the cursor position when the chat text is changed by Misspelled. More work is still needed here.
r11 - Fixed an error that occurred when adding a word to the user dictionary.
r10 - Debug print statements turned off, fixes related to clearing cached information about the current chat text.
r09 - Fixes for Chatter
r07 - Added Wrath dungeon and raid boss names to the standard Dictionary, along with the words: Jewelcrafting, Leatherworking, mana, and Warcraft
r06 - Fixes problems with embedded links.
r05 - "Ignore All" and "Add to User Dictionary" features implemented.
