I went down the wrong path with syntax tables when I saw M-f/M-b was
stepping through the word like doesn|’|t| so I figured it was about word
boundaries. Searching through the manual I couldn't find anything in
"(emacs) Quotation Marks" or "(emacs) Spelling" but found the references
to syntax tables regarding word boundaries in "(elisp) Word Motion".
As it turns out it was just a case of customising
ispell-local-dictionary-alist and adding both a default and "en_US"
entry with OTHERCHARS regexp as "['’]" pretty much exactly as the
docstring on ispell-dictionary-alist says.
