subverting the spellchecker

Posted:

Hi all,



I would like to be able to remove the word "basically" from the OS X spellchecker's default dictionary. The only wordlists that I can find are /usr/share/dict/words and /usr/share/dict/web2, and the spellchecker doesn't notice when I remove it from them. Is there somewhere else I could be looking, or is this an impossible task?



Thanks!

    Basically, why is it so important that your Mac unlearn this word!
