This extension providers spellchecking for Oxford English.
Oxford English is a subset of British English with very specific rules. Visit here to learn more.
This extension uses the dictionary straight from Chromium's OED spelling dictionary.
To set this extension as the spellcheck language, go Tools -> Language -> For Paragraph -> More…, then scroll down to Language, and select "English, OED spelling (UK)". Alternatively, at the bottom of the screen near the middle there should be a language, probably "English (USA)". Press that, and select "More…", and do as above.
Pressing the dropdown arrow should reveal an icon with the letters 'ab' and a checkmark, indicating it has a spellcheck enabled for it.
