Any of these four will bring up a dialogue titled 'Nod' which controls the formatting of the text. I'm not sure what the English is. ('Nod' can be 'Note' but I'm not sure that's the sense here!) (My Welsh isn't great!) But it allows you to choose font, font effects, positioning (subscript, superscript etc.), hyperlinks and background colour.
Offer > Iaith > For all Text > More...
brings up a dialogue for controlling language options, spelling etc.
What I'd expect to happen:
I'd expect the "More..." in the other cases to let me select a language for the selection or paragraph which is not in my default list.

I think that's the correct behaviour.
It's the same dialogue as 'Menu Format > Character'
There's a dropdown list box 'Language' in the 'Font' tab, with all available languages (where you can select the desired language).
'Bug 37919 - Clicking "more" on the Language Section in Writer at the bottom bar opens up the wrong Dialog Window'
'Bug 32780 - Character dialog box opens when click on "Tools > Language > For the selection > Plus.."'
My proposal: RESOLVED NOTABUG
It is the same behaviour as clicking
Tools -> Language -> For Selection or For Paragraph -> More ...
However, as you can see from the bug reports, this is surprising to the user, because when in a language context, you do not want to change the font or colors. You want to change the language.
It would thus be more sensible to follow the behaviour as if clicking
Tools -> Language -> All text -> More ...
and bring up the options dialog.
I see now that in Bug 32780 comment 1 there is some explaination, specifically that the language can be changed in the "Font" tab. Then, the bug is that this tab is not activated by default, and this behaviour should be changed.
I comment on this problem in Bug 32780, which seems to be the first bug-report, so conversation should be there.
