When you write a sentence, and WORD does not quite like that sentence structure, it will place a blue line underneath the offending words

It is the Grammar checker highlighting the issues. Either correct in accordance with the Grammar Checker or else turn Grammar checker OFF in Word Options. The latter is not recommended.

Word automatically checks your document for spelling and grammar errors, so you may not even need to run a separate check. These errors are indicated by colored, wavy lines.
•The red line indicates a misspelled word.
•The blue line indicates a grammatical error, including misused words.

A misused word (also known as a contextual spelling error) occurs when a word is spelled correctly but used incorrectly. For example, if you used the phrase "Deer Mr. Theodore" at the beginning of a letter, "deer" would be a contextual spelling error. "Deer" is spelled correctly, but it is used incorrectly in the letter. The correct word is "Dear".

In previous versions of Word, grammar errors were marked with a green line, while contextual spelling errors were marked with a blue line.

To correct spelling errors:
1.Right-click the underlined word. A menu will appear.
2.Select the correct spelling from the list of suggestions.
3.The corrected word will appear in the document.

You can also choose to Ignore an underlined word or phrase or go to the Spelling & Grammar pane for information about the grammar rule.
