Francophile Word

My work copy of Microsoft Word has been acting up the last couple of days. Weird alerts about my sentence structure, grammar, punctuation and, ultimately, my spelling. After several spell-checks and the obligatory cursing I found the problem. Someone had set my dictionary to French.

I’m not particularly paranoid, nor do I suffer from Francophilia, but my productivity has suffered. There are only so many times you can be told by a piece of software that “video” isn’t a word. Trust me.
