SYMPTOMS

When you are using Word 2000 with the Italian Proofing Tools, and you type the English word "cult", the grammar checker indicates that the phrase is grammatically incorrect. Word 2000 then displays the following message:
Si consiglia di sostituire la parola selezionata perché volgare,
Sostituire cult con:
sedere
Offensive word
fortuna
The suggested words contain a potentially offensive word.
