Error Messages



Not Applicable

Root Cause



This is not an issue but works correctly as expected behaviour.

Resolution



Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior: 

To suggest a correction, the spellchecker searches its dictionary for strings similar to the misspelling.

It then orders the potential corrections by their similarity and likelihood score. 

The known string nearest to your misspelling is the suggested correction. 

It does not display in the alphabetical order, it displays in the order that is more near to the word typed in.
