The word 'eery' is underlined in red, despite if being offered as a Thesaurus alternative to 'eerie'. Both spellings are usually indicated as acceptable, although 'eerie' is the more correct spelling of the word.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type 'eery' in LibreOffice Writer.
2. Notice the red underline.
3. Highlight the word, and open the Thesaurus.
4. Select 'eerie' from the alternatives list, and 'eery' will pop up as a valid replacement.
Eery was underlined as incorrect, yet still offered as a replacement for 'eerie'.
It should accept both spellings.

Thank you for reporting the bug. I cannot reproduce the bug in
I was able to recreate bug using
Version: 18.104.22.168 (x64)
Build ID: 23edc44b61b830b7d749943e020e96f5a7df63bf
I suppose it has already been fixed in the newest version then.
Dylan, could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ? I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.

The issue persists in the latest release.
I confirm the behaviour with

CPU-Threads: 4; BS: Windows 10.0; UI-Render: Standard; VCL: win;

but I'm not sure, if this is really a bug. I won't expect that dictionary knows every word.
Additional information: Dylan, you set yourself to Assignee. That means, that you you are going to fix that bug. If this is the case, it is O. K. If not, please remove yourself.
@Marco, any opinion here ?
Yes, the word is missing in the GB speller at least:
I have just added:
I am not sure if it is also missing in US+CA+AU since they are maintained by Kevin Atkinson.
The English spellers are only merged into master by me twice a year: on May and November, and I have already committed November's.
This means that only within 6 months the word will be integrated, unless the users download the English Dictionaries extension manually on 1-JAN-2020:
Better yet, you can always check the words in the English variants:
Each variant has a folder in GitHub and inside them it can be seen the full wordlist along with the other dictionary files.
