MS Word spell check on a rampage?

I'm using MS Word 2011, and in my docs every other word or more has the red wavy underline...and that include words like 'the' 'and' etc.
I like when it catches legitimate misspellings so would rather not turn it off, but will have to do so if remains so eager to make me look like the world's worst speller.
Any ideas?

1. There's a grammar checker has well, so it might be a grammatical error.
2. You haven't changed language settings, have you? And everything is underlined except when you typed something that is a correct German word by coincidence?

Thanks Gnasher.
1. I think that green wavy underlines are for grammar.
2. Great theory! But I checked, and I'm still in English.
