I don't see how that would work, unless you are using a version of an
English dictionary that knows about the ’ character.  I don't think
the rw-* packages have anything to do with that, or could have.

So I think a more interesting for the OP question will be where did
you get that "en_GB_hunspell" dictionary you are using, because that
dictionary might actually hold the answer for his questions.

P.S.  Most, if not all, of what rw-* packages do is already handled in
the ispell.el that comes with the latest versions of Emacs, which
include a full support for Hunspell.  You might as well try using
Emacs without those add-ons, you will probably find they are not
needed anymore.
