This is from my "init.el" -
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
;; Use hunspell instead of ispell
(if (file-exists-p "/usr/bin/hunspell")
      (setq ispell-program-name "hunspell")
      (eval-after-load "ispell"
        '(progn (defun ispell-get-coding-system () 'utf-8)))))
(setq ispell-program-name "hunspell") 
(require 'rw-hunspell)
(require 'rw-language-and-country-codes)
(require 'rw-ispell)
(setq ispell-dictionary "en_GB_hunspell")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Hopefully this will help you get going with hunspell, which I have
found is good! :) This is all I have set up for hunspell and it
works okay with "isn’t" as I've just corrected it in this email.

If you want copies of "rw-hunspell, rw-language-and-country-codes,
rw-ispell" I can priv mail them to you, but I think that I got them
From emacswiki.
