Can you check with the default Spell Checker Dialog in Gedit and note 
how the UI looks. Much better example with be the one in Kate if it does 
have one. The spell checker UI in the above screen shot is a very bad 
example of UI design. I very well understand that it's just a prototype 
but thought of pointing you in the right direction.

The word alternatives are listed as radio buttons with the buttons 
aligned straight to them, which visually implies that each button has 
something to do with the option it is lined with, but it is not exactly 
true in your case.

Also, the common way of offering options in spell checkers is through a 
single-selectable list box and the buttons aligned in a 2 row or 3 row 
two column arrangement. You can see this in the default spell checker 
used in Gedit.
