Not all locales come with a dictionary installed for licensing reasons. If you do not have the en-US locale then check that you have a dictionary installed (Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) and selected.
You can see which dictionary is selected if you right-click in a text area and open the Languages submenu. Also make sure that [[X]"Check Spelling" in the right-click context menu has a tick. You can also try to toggle the "Check Spelling" item off and on again.
