I was working on a document in French with the auto hyphenation enabled. All seems to be good, except for two words that are wrong. I wonder, is there is a way to let Publisher know that a particular document is in French? Would that have avoided these two errors. 

électron-ique instead of électro-nique

postdoctor-ales instead of postdocto-rales

The spelling and hyphenation language is set at the paragraph style (and character style for local changes). If it is already set to French in your paragraph  style then likely the Hunspell hyphenation module is wrong.

And the Spelling and Hyphenation languages will default from the UI language if possible. So, for example, if the Publisher UI is in French, and there are French spelling and hyphenation languages installed, the Base text style will be set to French for both spelling and hyphenation, and any style that inherits from Base will have those languages set automatically.
