vim Spell checker Set Word List


To set the word list that vim will use for spell checking set the spelllang option. For example

:set spelllang=en        # set to English, usually this is the default
:set spelllang=en_us     # set to U.S. English 
:set spelllang=en_uk     # set to U.K. English spellings
:set spelllang=es        # set to Spanish

If you want to set the spelllang and turn on spell checking in one command, you can do:

:setlocal spell spelllang=en
