This is more a feature of word processing software not programming languages, so I would say no. However it is possible to deal with spelling variations in which have a grammatical component such as singular and plural, even though it it won't tell you whether it is wrong or not.

In what context? Are you looking to parse some text documents?

From the gut:

Write the text fields to external files and run a spellchecker of your choice against them. Always use the proper tool for a given task. SAS is statistics and not word processing.
