    Maybe somehow you have switch language in the spell checking and it's no longer checking for English words and thus those are incorrect?!?!

    EDIT: I'm not even sure you can do this..... just seemed like it could be the problem.

    You can change the spell-checker language by going to most any text entry area (like a reply to this post), right/control clicking to bring up the menu, selecting Spelling->Spelling... and then changing the language.

    Hopefully, this is all that happened and is easily reparable!
