Grammar corrector has flagged a word as being misspelled when it is correct?

Multiple dictionaries are used by grammar corrector to identify spelling errors. You may have submitted the text with British spellings, and the grammar corrector has flagged them. The reason for this is that in the bottom left corner are two blue colored boxes. One has 'English, ' and the other has 'American' written on them. These are the defaults used by grammar corrector. If your text is in another language click on the box that says English and selects the language. If you have not changed the default from American to the English that you have written the text in, it will highlight spelling mistakes. In some American English words' is replaced with 'z,' and words ending in 'our' are spelled excluding the 'u' like in color.
