Emacs just goes with whatever the .aff file of the dictionary you use
says.  And it cannot do anything else, because the speller uses that
dictionary, and decides by its rules what can and what cannot be in a

Look in the .aff file you use, and you will see that it knows about '
and about n't and about 's, that's why these work.  There's no magic

So I think you must get a hold of a Hunspell-compliant dictionary that
knows about the ’ apostrophe.
