thank you so much!
The “detect language automatically” setting in spelling check can also cause issues if you have Spanish authored papers in your references, notes or the like. Outlook can decide to use the Spanish word and switch spelling check for the entire document to Spanish automatically as soon as it encounters that word.

You can ditch automatic language detection, if that occurs.

Thanks for the grade. Good luck.
