Programmers have yet to develop a spell check sophisticated enough to recognize a misspelled word, if said word is in the program's dictionary. (If such a sophisticated program does exist, I'm not aware of it.) It's why spell check doesn't recognize incorrect homophone usage (their instead of there, for example), and it's why spell check fails to detect anagram mix-ups.
Let's take an anagram-related test. I'll provide four sentences with flaws that remain beyond spell check's reach. You must succeed where spell check fails. Here goes:
- The How concert ended with a stirring rendition of "Magic Sub."
- I freaked out when I spotted the art in the subway.
- If you attend a standing-room-only fart party, it's best to avoid eating baked beans.
- Hearing the voice of the coroner really buoyed my spirits.
