I tried going into System Preferences --> Keyboard --> Text (uncheck) "Correct Spelling Automatically" It seems to have worked (so far) - I still get the option to correct without it automatically correcting (or autocorrecting to a word that was not a real word), at least in my emails, which was my biggest problem.
This work for me on El Capitan: https://www.osx.news/mac/turn-off-autocorrect-on-mac/
Under System Preferences > Keyboard > Text there is a checkbox in the top right called "Correct spelling automatically". Turn that off to disable AppleSpell.
I tried all above but it didn't work - finally turned off predictive and turned on and now my spell check is working
Predictive was off. Turned it on and now I have my spell check back. And I turned auto correction off.
