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
Words are marked incorrectly with no correct spelling suggestions.
Words should be marked correctly or if typed incorrectly, these words should be given as suggestions.

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?
