Paul, Well that would certainly explain the problem.
I forget what distro you use, but if has a package manager I would start there.
Sure enough, SlackBuilds.org has an English language package which provides five dictionaries of English usage - Australian, Canadian, United States, and two forms of British English. As the package maintainer explains, "he reason I've included two forms of British English dictionaries are: "1. The -ise suffix is more commonly used by British speakers and all other forms such as en_DK, en_IE, en_IN, etc are symbolic links to en_GB-ise. "2. the en_GB-ize/en_GB-oxendict which uses the -ize suffix is known as Oxford English Dictionary Spelling and is generally favored for academic, formal, and technical writing." I modified the build script to limit it to US_en as that's the only flavor I speak/write. Thanks for the pointer, Rich
