“isn’t” isn't an error according to my spellchecker,
aspell.

But before I go on about that, I agree with everyone
else saying don't use those silly chars - what's the
benefit? They look stupid and they bring along problems
like this (though not for aspell, it would seem, but
for Hunspell in your case, and in other situations as
well). Again, what's the gain using them?

(setq ispell-program-name "aspell")
(setq ispell-dictionary "english")
(setq ispell-silently-savep t)

Ignore within special delimiters:

(add-to-list 'ispell-skip-region-alist '("`" . "`"))
(add-to-list 'ispell-skip-region-alist '("`" . "'"))

With aspell, get it from the repositories - likewise
dictionaries, which are called aspell-en, aspell-sv,
etc.

More aspell:

To really get the blood pumping behind your ears, you
need shortcuts for the different dictionaries, as well.
