You can turn these features on and off under the Tools menu: Spelling and Grammar, Options. Notice the first item under Spelling says, "Check spelling as you type." When this box is ticked, the application checks spelling in real time and notifies you of (suspected) errors by placing a red, wiggly line under the word. If you find this annoying, you can turn it off by un-ticking the selection box. This is also true of the green squiggly line generated by the grammar checker.

The red line indicates a spelling or grammar error.

But do remember that this wriggling informs you that the spelling you have written is not correct as per dictionary available - so it gives you option  to correct

What can we do if the red, wiggly line appears under sentences in foreign languages like French, German or Spanish?
