In commit a8f9cd3e54cec6256c11867c7d4bc6da402de18b I added these two languages 

         {"cv", "cv", "RU"},
         {"tt", "tt", "RU"},

and now I can use these in LibreOffice just fine (using a fake dictionary). We 
usually use ISO 639-1 codes when they are available but I don't understand how 
that could have caused this problem.

If it still does not work for you after you pull the latest change from GitHub 
the problem might have something to do with the specific dictionary. Which 
backend you were using? If you are using the ZHFST format, I could have a look 
if I could download the speller for testing. If you used the Lttoolbox backend 
I would recommend converting first to ZHFST format to see if that helps.

And it is also worth checking that LibreOffice is using the same build of 
libvoikko that you use with voikkospell. Often, at least on Linux, it happens 
easily that LibreOffice uses the system provided library and command line 
tools use the library that you compiled from source.
