Google itself is pretty good with helping you find words you don't know 
how to spell.  I've seldom had to search very hard when I just enter the 
word (spelled as I think it *might* be) and let Google figure out which 
one I was hoping for.  When it does, it then usually lists wiktionary or 
wikipedia as among the first links.

I'm quite sure there are some collaborative spelling lists out there.  In 
fact, I seem to recall something called the "moby" whatever; I guess 
"moby" signifies huge size, like Moby Dick.  Whatever...
