Description phly95 2017-01-03 00:55:45 UTC
The English US dictionary hasn't been updated since 2011. This means there are plenty of new words that aren't in the LibreOffice spellcheck dictionary such as the words:
cyberattack, iPhone, Xbox, Uber, Lyft, TechCrunch, and many, many more.
Microsoft Word recognizes all of these words natively. 

Speaking of which, "natively" is also not in the LibreOffice dictionary.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable US English Dictionary
2. Type in cyberattack, iPhone, Xbox, Uber, Lyft, TechCrunch, or natively
3. According to LibreOffice, these words don't exist

Actual Results:  
Words are marked incorrectly with no correct spelling suggestions.

Expected Results:
Words should be marked correctly or if typed incorrectly, these words should be given as suggestions.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Not correct.


However the additional words are probably valid entries to add. And the infrastructure for the thesaurus list and UI could use some attention as well (see bug 99999).

I update the GB speller monthly:

In the GitHub above there are also the most recent version of US, CA and AU done by Kevin Atkinson.

I am planning to submit them to Gerrit in my next update.

What I am scared of is that someone will always complain about a word here and there, and will take months to give a +2 (the time taken for my GB to be approved was enough for me to release a couple of new versions or so).

So, when is the proper date for me to submit GB+US+CA+AU and it be approved in good time?


Kind regards,
