Thanks guys but it can't hurt to check with another spell checker.
I believe the "hunspell" or "myspell" packages (in the repositories) normally provide this functionality. I think hunspell is installed by default. If you want to see if myspell would work better you can try installing and using that. There should be a package for U.S. English. Your package manager will probably insist on uninstalling hunspell (and vice versa,) just so that you are aware. I also found this extension, although it's not for U.S. English.

Reason: Added comment.
The spell checker is irrelevant, since it's the dictionary that provides the words. Hunspell is the current checker for Writer, I believe, while the dictionaries can be fond in repositories as either hunspell or myspell - it depends on the language, as both are the same format.
Very large dictionaries do have a drawback: you mistyping is more likely to be accepted as a (rare) word.
