Can Anyone Explain Why …

Standard

I do use some slightly random and lesser known words which I can perfectly understand why WordPress’s proofreader/spellcheck system would have a problem with.  Ignore, ignore, ignore.  No, that word is not just a figment of my imagination.  It also has problems with what it terms ‘complex expressions’.  It thinks I’m wordy.  It also seems to think that most of our readership is what can only be impolitely termed ‘thick’.  It has to turn these ‘complex expressions’ into the most basic sentences that lack interest and have a vocabulary level suited to an infant school child.  Ignore, ignore, ignore.

What I can’t understand however is why it recently decided to inform me that two very elementary words were spelling mistakes.  I did double check elsewhere, a combination of lack of confidence and dodgy eyesight, but no I was correct.  Both T-A-I-L and B-A-S-E are acceptable, standard spellings of common regularly used words.  Why aren’t they in the proofreader/spellchecker?  Or was it just having a funny five minutes on me?
