Anyway it is a limit that could be avoided.

I mix languages. I am pretty sure that my setup works the same.

BTW solution around reduction of jump points does not not affect
faces: "nd" or "badnd" at the end of "good badnd good " does not call
spell check on the first "badnd".

I saw this function.

Emacs words are language sensitive too. Emacs jumps through all ends
of words from RU and EN languages even if the words are not separated.

Word of 3 parts: English "asdf", Russian "фыва" (execute-kbd-macro
(kbd "C-q 02104 RET C-q 02113 RET C-q 02062 RET C-q 02060 RET")),
English "asdf".

^   ^   ^   ^
b   b   b
    f   f   f

M-b and C-M-r \< jumps through positions marked by b. M-f and
C-M-r \> jumps through positions marked by f. It is one word for
flyspell in my setup and in LANG=C emacs -Q.

But I do not know if it is applicable to other languages and/or other
setups. How could it be improved? Other solutions?

I'd propose as a variant to use emacs' words for flyspell and vice
versa but it would a bad idea. My emacs jumps over asdf'asdf in one
hop and similar behaviour could be done for other languages with their
respective 'otherchars' but it would be inconvenient for some users
including me (python-mode has _ as a part of word by default, both
questions how to enable it everywhere and how to disable it in
python-mode exist).
