MS Yoda & English Word # 1,000,000

Here's a weird, and annoying, aside: Microsoft Word has gone all little-green-pointy-eared-master on me. It keeps tying to correct the phrase:

“What am I to do”
“What to do I am”

Fairly aggravating (this is just one example. Either Word's folks are jokers, unreasonably obssessed with Star Wars, or they're unfamilair with basic English grammar).

On another note: people who watch these sort of things (that would be Global Language Monitor) are anticipating the upcoming one millionth English word. Seriously? The millionth is coming just now? Woo hoo!
