[Tex/LaTex] How to change the spellcheck language of Texmaker to US English


I've installed Texmaker (via MacTeX using Homebrew) and noticed that the spell checker has been set to British English. Thus is marks "color" as a misspelling and suggests "colour" as an alternative.

How can I switch Texmaker to use US English as the language of the spellchecker? (It would be even better if I could get it to use the same spellchecking library as the rest of macOS so that my learned spellings will be applied).
