WD2002: Italian Proofing Tools Make a Potentially Offensive Suggestion

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
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:
Offensive word
The suggested words contain a potentially offensive word.
This problem occurs because the Italian grammar checker is mistaking the English word "cult" with another word in Italian.
To resolve this problem, obtain the Office XP Italian Proofing Tools update, released on March 5, 2002. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
