When writing document I wanted to set the paragraph language to English.
I went to the status-bar where it read "none" and left-clicked. On the menu I have the options of "Farsi", "Hebrew", "none" "reset" and "more..".
When I click more it throws me to a dialog called "character" where I can not find any option for language.
Going to menu 'Tools-> language -> selection->more' or 'Tools-> language -> paragraph-> more' gives same result.
Going to 'Tools-> language -> for all text->more' takes you to option language setting dialog window (seems correct)
Present also in version 3.4.2
"When I click more it throws me to a dialog called "character" where I can not
find any option for language."
The tab 'Font' should show the drop-down list 'Language'.
See the attached screenshot 'format_character_font_language.png'

Modified bug report (due to inactivity of the initial bug reporter):
1. New (empty) Text Document 'Untitled 1'
2. Type 'dt', <F3>
3. Select (highlight) the text
4. Menu Format > Character > Background
5. Select any color > OK
6. New (empty) Text Document 'Untitled 2'
7. Type 'dt', <F3>
8. Status bar > Set Language for Paragraph (or Selection) > More...
Expected: Dialog 'Character' shows the tab 'Font' with the drop-down list 'Language'
Bug: Dialog 'Character' shows the tab 'Background'(language selection apparently unavailable).
The same bug with
9. Menu Tools > Language > For Paragraph (or Selection) > More...
For steps 8. and 9.:
'More...' should always open/show the tab 'Font', irrespective of the last used tab by the user.

It seems that LibreOffice is remembering the clicked tab. Just force to select the "Font" tab if clicked on "More" (languages) and everything should be fine.
