I can think of several reasons for the language changes. The main reason, I'm sure, is that most files have been worked on by many different people over the years (using OOo as well as LO), and each person may have different settings on their machine that find their way into the files. Not everyone uses the US English version of LO; some have worked on German, Italian, or other versions even though they write in English. Words and paragraphs get copied from one file to another... the styles have a long, convoluted history, some helpers have used manual formatting that was badly removed -- or not removed -- by others, etc etc.

It finds the 'we', and it finds the 'll', but not the whole word, nor the apostrophe alone. Over-typing the apostrophe and doing the search finds it ok.
