CalcSpellCheckLanguage.ods:  two pairs of US/UK spelling differences

During spell checking, you have the option to change the language dictionary for a specific word. The character language properties are changed once you run through the spell checker.  So running the spell check a second time finds no errors. That broke in LO4.2 for Calc.

It was broken by Kohei Yoshida.  Bibisect42max has a range of commits that fail to start at this time, so I couldn't fully bisect.  The first proven bad is

The last proven good commit is 4bc3a58a648f6c0ce95b4eb41f2cbf46175629ed, just before Kohei's spell-checker related Calc changes.

Testing procedure:
-open CalcSpellCheckLanguage.ods.  [Default Language is English US. Labour and neighbour are marked as misspellings.]
-run the spell checker.  On the misspelled words, change the Language to English UK within the spell-checker dialog.
-run the spell checker a second time.  There should be no errors, and the character font properties of those words should be marked as English UK.
