This mod from nrpieper is a chat spell-checker. The mod watches chat messages you type, highlighting misspellings.
Misspelled is a Wow chat spell-checker. It watches chat messages you type, highlighting misspellings. Misspelled words may be right clicked to obtain a list of replacement suggestions.
Included are dictionaries for US English, German and Spanish.
Misspelled utilizes the HunSpell style, affix (prefix/suffix) compressed dictionaries. The same ones used in Chrome, Firefox, and OpenOffice. Misspelled provides suggestions based on words that phonetically sound like the misspelled word, along with suggestions based on common mistakes of spelling.
I've included in the US English dictionary some Warcraft specific proper nouns, including the zone names, and all Wrath dungeon and raid boss names. Your friends and guild members are also added.
Note: The last word in the chat box, isn't spell checked until you type some form of word terminator, either a period, space, or some other word separating punctionation. Spell checking is very fast; but I don't want to check unneedlessly. I don't spell check the last word on a line, until it looks like your finished typing that word.

r32 - Added 642 new base words to the US English dictionary. See the change-log for more info.
r31 - Fix an error occurring for new users that were not using a prior version and didn't have a savedVariables Misspelled.lua file.
r30 - Spanish (esES) dictionary support added.
There is a new interface options page, that allows you to manually select a dictionary to load.
Fewer and better suggestions returned for misspelled words.
UTF8 multi-byte character encodings support added.
r25-r27 Capitalized misspelled words will stay capitalized after selecting a replacement suggestion. Long term I want to detect the beginning of a sentence, so I can correct incorrect Capitalization. For now this change should help.
Added these characters to the list of word separators: "(", ")", ";"
The Suggestion ranking EditDistance method's substitution cost, is now case insensitive.
r24 - Changed the misspelled highlighting to a medium-cyan-ish color. Hopefully this will make it easier to see misspelled words in all the common channels: Say, Party, Raid, Guild, Whisper, Trade, Yell
r23 - Added Ace3 OptionDep tag to the .toc, so the addon would properly load for those running without libs embedded.
r22 - Now uses AceEvent to replace the hidden frame and OnEvent hook needed to load guild members.
Added the "words" LFG and LFM to the US English dictionary.
When a suggestion is selected to replace a given misspelled word (or Ignore or Add to Dic. was selected), the cursor was positioned at end of the replaced word. Now, if there is a space after that word, the cursor is positioned to the right of that space. This should reduce the spell-checking needed when the only character on the line, to the right of a cursor, is a space.
r21 - Changed some of the frame xlm code, to hopefully hide a phantom dropdown frame that was being reported showing up.
r20 - A German dictionary has been added and will load if you are using the German client.
Note: No Warcraft specific proper nouns have been included in the German dictionary.
Did some work to help ensure Misspelled's compatability with other chat addons.
Various speed improvements.
r19 - Fix for errors reported loading friends player names into the dictionary.
r18 - Reduced memory needed to store the dictionary in half. Affix keys and phonetic codes are no longer stored using subtables. Memory usage went from 11.6Mb to 5.7Mb
The user dictionary storage format was changed to match the, updated, in memory dictionary storage format. Any existing user dictionaries will be converted the first time you load r18.
Improved the suggestions generation, especially when the word contains a capital letter.
Maximum number of suggestions returned is now 8, not 10.
r17 - No UI or functionality changes. Made some parts of the code more efficient.
Maximum suggestions increased to 10
Fixed an error where words in all CAPS, or words that contained numbers were throwing a Lua error.
Fixed the chat edit cursor position so it moves naturally as you perform edits in and around misspelled highlighted words. Wow this was a lot of work. Did you know you can crash Wow, with an invalid cursor position!
Fixed a problem where the spell checking routine was firing twice, if it found a misspelled word.
More code cleanup. There shouldn't be any remaining, non reachable code.
We're getting very near release quality!
r15 - The Misspelled word suggestions pop-up dialog now takes up less space. And a "Cancel" option was added to the bottom of the pop-up.
Guild members weren't always loading. The loading guild members routine is now delayed until the first ChatEditBox_OnTextChanged event. I wasn't always getting guild member info during addon loading.
r14 - Fixed error loading guild members
r13 - Your friends and guild roster are now, upon zone-in, added to the list of correctly spelled words. Suggestions that match a friend or guild member player name are flagged with either (Friend) or (Guild), in the suggestions right-click pop-up. Lots of cleanup and remarks added to the code. Fixed cases where editing near the boundary of a highlighted misspelled word would mangle color tag information leaving only partial color tags. Started implementing routines to correctly set the cursor position when the chat text is changed by Misspelled. More work is still needed here.
r11 - Fixed an error that occurred when adding a word to the user dictionary.
r10 - Debug print statements turned off, fixes related to clearing cached information about the current chat text.
r09 - Fixes for Chatter
r07 - Added Wrath dungeon and raid boss names to the standard Dictionary, along with the words: Jewelcrafting, Leatherworking, mana, and Warcraft
r06 - Fixes problems with embedded links.
r05 - "Ignore All" and "Add to User Dictionary" features implemented.
