How do I use my personal dictionary?

With Grammarly’s personal dictionary feature, you can make sure that unique words in your lexicon won’t be flagged as misspelled. 

If you’d like to stop flagging a particular spelling as incorrect, you can add the word to your personal dictionary by clicking the Add to dictionary button on the suggestion card: 


To manage your personal dictionary, sign in to your account, go to Account, and then select Customize


Here you can add or remove words:  

  • To add a word, enter it in the corresponding field in the Customize menu and click Add
  • To remove a word from your personal dictionary, hover over the word that you wish to remove and click on the trash can icon that will appear next to it: 


Keep in mind that words containing symbols other than English language letters cannot be added to your Grammarly dictionary. Multiple words separated by spaces also cannot be added. 

Note: Once you add a particular word to your personal dictionary, it will not be flagged in other Grammarly products
