On the other hand, I discovered by chance a couple of years ago that if you
sic the spell-check installed on Microsoft Word 4 on an Italian text, it
will inform you that when your document contains the word "velluto" (=
'velvet'), you must have really intended to type "fellatio". Someone
really ought to write a psychosemantic study of the spell-checker
translation algorithm.
