The following message is a courtesy copy of an article

all I can find in
(setq dabbrev-case-replace nil)
(setq dabbrev-abbrev-char-regexp "\\sw\\|\\s_") ;try it
(setq flyspell-use-global-abbrev-table-p t);hush up its bug

However, I notice today I'm not having the problem, ...ah ha, until I
internet ESC TAB,
whereupon flyspell-auto-correct-word make is become
and furthermore, from then on, any typing of "internet SPC" will end
up with "interned".

Perhaps intentional, but too much like Outlook2000 looking out for me
or whatever.

I see, I don't want flyspell-auto-correct-word to make it an
auto-abbrev for the rest of the file or something, even if is OK once.
