The insanity of spell checkers

OK, this is bizarre. Here are the suggestions that OpenOffice.org offers for “Mixolydian” (yes, I was just working on an assignment for a music class, why do you ask?):

* Polynesian
* Polynesians
* Indianapolis
* Modigliani
* Modigliani’s

Yep, that’s right, Vaughan Williams was writing in the Polynesian mode…or perhaps the Indianapolis mode. Who’d have thought?

“Rallentando” produced some equally bizarre results:

* rentaller
* transcendental
* grandiloquent
* Talleyrand’s
* Talleyrand
