Default Spell Check in Word 2007 missing the dictionary/thesaurus

Spell check/thesaurus stopped working a few weeks ago. I've checked all the
possible settings problems I found on forums (spell check is enabled, correct
language is loaded/selected, etc), no change.

The error message says "no dictionary/thesaurus found, if you know where
it's installed, go find it manually, etc". So I looked up where to find the
"default Office Word dictionary" and according to Microsoft it should be in
Boot drive\Users\user_name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Pr oof - I found the
folder, it's empty. Completely empty. No .dic files to be found.

Spell check was working before, which means I must have had a dictionary
installed at one point. I couldn't have deleted it because I didn't even know
what Appdata\Roaming was until this problem started, so I definately didn't
go in there and mess things up. Where'd my dictionary go? Can I have a new
one?
