You cannot expect that from a speller.  You should expect that from
people who produce the dictionaries for the speller, because it's the
dictionary files that tell the speller which characters can and cannot
appear in a word, and which suffixes can and cannot be appended to a
word for it to remain correctly spelled.

Hunspell already supports all that, it's just your dictionary that
doesn't.  Look at the *.aff files to understand how the ' apostrope
works, and you will see why the speller is not the issue here.
