The "/" may be getting replaced by "w" because of inconsistency in the dictionary.
Follow these steps to solve the problem:
1. Open a document in Word and enable Spelling and Grammar check on the document by clicking “Review” in the top navigation ribbon, and then clicking the “Spelling & Grammar” tab. Change or ignore misspelled words, as desired, when the Spelling dialog box displays a suspected misspelling. Spell check the entire document.
2. Click the “File” option, and then click “Options” once the spell checker has reached the end of the document.
3. Click the “Proofing” option, and then click the “Recheck Document” option. A warning message displays indicating that the operation resets the spelling and grammar checker so that Word will recheck words you previously checked.
4. Click “Yes” to continue, and then click “OK” to close the Word Options box. Spell check rechecks the document.
