This might seem like a strange question . . .

. . . but is there a downloadable spelling dictionary filled with biblical/theological terms? Oddly enough, Maher-Shalal-Hashbaz is not part of my Mac's dictionary. It seems that Logos might be in a perfect position to create a reasonably comprehensive word list that we could import in our spelling system of choice.

Dictionary of Theological Terms by Alan Cairns is available, but does not contain that name.

This term can be found in the Baker Encyclopedia of the Bible (4 vols.), which is a bit less expensive in the Logos 7 Fundamentals package.

I apologize  - I was trying to be clever. I know about Mahershalalhasbaz and how to use resources. What I’m looking for is a comprehensive list of words that would not typically be found in Microsoft Word or the Mac spelling dictionary, but could be imported to teach the system what they are, rather than giving a great number of red underlines. Mahershalalhasbaz was just an example. Since Logos has notes and sermon mss capabilities, it should already recognize biblical and theological words, but it doesn’t.

I created some Word dictionaries from the concordance tool using various Bible versions at

There is also a theological list but I never completed it. Needs review, exclusions, and more terms imported...
