Yes you can.
Presuming that your e-mail software's built-in editor (or the WP you
use as an e-mail editor) performs a spell check before sending the
message, just find the way into your spell checking dictionary and
erase the entries for "original" and "originality." Then it will
always prompt you with a dialogue box seeking confirmation when it
encounters these words, offering you alternative words, etc. If you
say "yes accept this word" it will probably ask you again in a
different way just to be sure.
I may well do that sort of thing myself with words like "merely,"
"simply," "obviously," and other words often used in a dismissive
sense, just to prevent me from falling into the trap of dismissing
evidence contrary to my pet hypotheses for the sake of convenience.
