If you type unique words, it may show as misspelled words in Grammarly. You can add those words to your personal dictionary. So, when you type the same words for the next time, it won't be flagged as misspelled words.

As of now, Grammarly supports only the English language. You can set your native English as Canadian, American, British and Australian. Except for English, even symbols won't be added to the personal dictionary. Besides, multiple English words separated by commas or space also can't be added.
