This question already has an answer here:

i mistakenly added a misspelled word to dictionary in MS word 2007.(right click > add to dictionary) I tried a lot but could not find a way to remove that particular entry. Is there a way to do this so that my spell check works properly.

Here's some information I found elsewhere:

In Word 2007, go to Office Button | Word Options | Proofing and click on Custom Dictionaries… In the Custom Dictionaries dialog, select CUSTOM.DIC and click on Edit Word List… This will open a dialog showing a list of words. Find the word you inadvertently added and delete or correct it, then click OK to close the dialog.

Hope it works!
