English: non-words: “irrecognizable”

Self-tutoring about English: the tutor relates a story.

For years I’ve used “irrecognizable.” I guess I just didn’t type it. When I did yesterday, the spell-checker complained. (I think the spell checker and I have been ready to divorce numerous times, but that’s another story:)

Good thing, I guess, that I haven’t divorced the spell checker yet, because it was right: I can’t find “irrecognizable” anywhere. It must just be a figment of my imagination?(!)?

The spell checker is happy with the word “unrecognizable.” I hope it can forgive me:)
