The nroff filter fails to properly detach formatting commands. A sample follows.

I suspect the problem is that the filter is not expecting two formatting commands back to back, so it treats the B of \fBAcademic as part of the substantive word and calls a mispelling (which in the first instance would have been correct as I'd left of the second 'a', but prefixing the B was unhelpful).

Sample:
.PH "''''"
.PF "''- \\\\nP -''"
.SA 1
.S 10
.nr Hc 1
.nr Hc 0
.nr Hb 3
.nr Pt 2
.nr Pi 2
.ft R
.ce 99
.ds HP +1 +0 +0 +0
.ds HF PB PB PI PI
.rm HZ
.de HZ
'ft PR

    What version of Aspell is this. Use "aspell -v" to find out.
