I'm sorry but I couldn't avoid laughing at this...

Works as designed? Yes, this is true. It is indeed *usable* but USELESS.
Sorry for picking the wrong word.

>From a functionality point of view this is the same as saying that "LO does
NOT provide a Grammar checker for en_US. You should get an Extension if you
require that Extra feature". This means that the menu option IS misleading.

I am aware that the Language tools are not developed by TDF but then to be
perfectly honest TDF should not gloat that "Writer has all the features you
need from a modern, full-featured word processing and desktop publishing
tool" (I had never noticed the DTP part... LOL)
A Grammar checker is a MAJOR feature of a word processor. Again, playing
with words, it is indeed *included* except that it is useless...

Of course this is not a TDF/LO only problem. Still it is misleading and

Oh, and Language Tool didn't find any errors on that sentence...

Just my 2 cents...
