You've got to be joking!

After having worked a couple of years with a beloved MS Word file,
I've just now been told that the custom dictionary (the "CUSTOM.DIC")
is "full".  WTF?!?

I find this stunning.  Is there a way to prevent this from happening? 
I mean, sheesh, we're talking about strings of text on a notepad file here!

Does anybody know how to reconfigure my Microsoft Word to have a much
huger custom dictionary, ideally limited only by the size of my hard

What is the maximum size for custom dictionaries?  Can that be
altered?  Don't I have any options?  I really can't add any more

Etc. Etc.
