actual bug: when a word or a sentence ended with special characters are not checked by the spell checker in writer

expected result: when I type a word and end with special character without giving space or with giving space spell checker should indicate the mistake with a red line indication

step1: open liber writer
step2: type any word or sentence
step3: end the word or sentence with except(.) use any other special character
step4: word ended with special character should indicate error by underlining with red line at the bottom of the word
step5: for example end the word with , without giving space

I'm not entirely convinced that LibreOffice should behave this way...

> character

What would you consider a "special character" ?

> step4: word ended with special character should indicate error by
> underlining with red line at the bottom of the word
> step5: for example end the word with , without giving space

In the English language, it's perfectly natural to immediately follow a word with a comma, as I just did twice in this sentence.

Please attach a test document demonstrating words ending in special characters that aren't being spell-checked properly (the "followed!to" bit definitely looks like a bug, but I'd like to see the source document myself).

Status -> NEEDINFO

(after you attach the test document, please change status back to UNCONFIRMED. thanks!)

For what it's worth, with Finnish spellchecking the second word gets blue underlining with this type of scenario: sana!sana
