I have said this a number of times, and that at least the English

3.11 which I am still using because I am reluctant to give up the
personal dictionary to which I have added perhaps thousands of compound
words. If the current release of LO is significantly better in this area
I haven't heard of it. Nor do I know how to find and save/copy/move my
personal dictionary.
On a related matter, I believe that if a developer/programmer could put
instructions on this list, I believe that a few users like me with
greatly enhanced personal dictionaries could send them in as attachments
and someone could use them to build a better word list that would make
for a much better spell check function for LO.

Not a bad idea. It may be even better to try to identify a whole new word list that has a license open enough for LibO to use.

I agree, but from what I have heard on this list, coming up with another word list (one enough better to bother with) may not be easy. And if that is indeed the case, and someone wants to tell me how, I would volunteer to purge my personal dictionary of proper nouns and such and then send it in. Also I am sure many other end users would be willing to do the same.
