MS Word has got it right this time, folks: when a red, wavy line appears underneath the word Hongkong, it’s a signal that it might not be the right way to write it.

The New Oxford American Dictionary, Merriam Webster, Dictionary.com, and the Learner’s Dictionary all say that when we refer to the special administrative region of China that was a former British dependency, then we write its name as Hong Kong.
