DefaultNaturalLanguage

DefaultNaturalLanguage

is an option for character selections that specifies the language used when checking the spelling of a word in a human natural language selection.

Details

  • Human natural language selections are those that have LanguageCategory->"NaturalLanguage".
  • With the default setting DefaultNaturalLanguage->"Language", the language is taken to be the current setting of the Language option.
  • The language can also be specified explicitly as a string, for example, by setting DefaultNaturalLanguage to "English", "French", or "German".
  • This option is typically set at the global level, but it can also be set at the level of an individual notebook, cell, or selection.
