It is me who has been patching the ZA dictionary as well since the developer vanished a decade or so ago.

It is very strange, “manuscripts” is in the dictionary, but it appears as a typo (plural).

I don't know why.

My LibO data

Version: (X86_64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: bd819218336a5be54a11b986ea4dd2db2efb120e
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 5.10; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: en-ZA (en_GB.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

I am using a pre-release version of LibO.
I have it setup for an English (ZA) UI, and write documents for

LibO consistently flags plurals as spelling errors.  is one example.
All of the underlined words are correctly spelled.

Does this happen to anybody else?
Or is this a result something I'm doing when configuring LibO.


As a translator I am using both en_US and en_GB and have never had that
problem. Go to Settings (Configuration?) > Language configuration >
Writing aids and see what dictionaries you have. LO may be getting
confused if there is no specific en_ZA dictionary.

(As a test you might consider changing the config to en_GB to see if
the same problem appears with plurals.)

The other, less likely issue may be with the locale setting. (I say
less likely because my system and UI are set to es_ES, and I have not
seen the problems with English plurals in documents.) I just installed
a Linux system for someone here Spain and the Spanish translations were
spotty because the system locale was incorrectly set at first. Can the
UI locale be set to ZA? And why is en_GB indicated in parens after your
locale setting? Is there no specific en_ZA.UTF-8 setting?

Hope there are other NZ users who can help more.
