I ran the spec through a typo-finder program I cooked up and it found these among lots of false positives.

altogther (
approprate (5.8.4)
argments (
asychronously (5.8.4)
attribue's (2 in 4.6.12)
attrbutes (4.10.4)
constaints (, 2 in
elemnt (
elment (6.5, 4.3.1)
follwed (4.10.2)
fouth (4.10.9)
implementaion (5.7.2)
indicies (4.10.1, 4.10.6)
knowns (4.2.2)
oherwise (
snipet (4.6.10)
sebsteps (5.8.4)

Also, the following words appear with different spelling variations; I suggest one of the variants be picked and used consistently:

behaviour vs. behavior
favorite vs. favourite
honour vs. honor
occurance[s] vs. occurrence[s]
categoris* vs. categoriz*
recognis* vs. recogniz*
serialis* vs. serializ*
tokenis* vs. tokeniz*
