    Examples? It's the Oxford American, so it's pretty comprehensive.

    Well, if you know the words you're using are actual words (and that you've spelled them correctly), just add them to the spell-check dictionary yourself. Right-click on one, and choose "Learn Spelling."

    EDIT: Wait a second. "Interregional" would mean between different regions... but "intraregional" would mean "within a given region," which is the meaning of just the word "regional" in the first place. :confused:

    intraregional migration - is movement within one region
    interregional migration - is movement from one region of a country to another

    ya i know learn word but i really suck at spelling, and most of the time i have it wrong, then i check like 5 times, and o... i am right
