I run Word 2003, and if I type in "prayin gand" it will correct it to "praying and". All well and good, and this works with all common verbs I've tried (though for some reason it doesn't do it at the start of a sentence). So I wondered how much of the "replace text as you type" list (in tools/autocorrect options/autocorrect) was taken up with this kind of stuff, since there would have to be one entry for every verb ... only, none of them were there! So where is it getting these corrections from? I can't find them anywhere. Just curious.
