This problem happened to another user earlier, but cannot find the

Check your preferences under Spelling (Hyphenation and Spelling) and
see if it points to your /usr/share/myspell/your_language (en_US in my
case) and check in fact that it is there

I also found I was using /home/owen/.scribus/dicts/en_GB, the colour
was right! But have no idea how it got there
