I am encountering this behavior when attempting to teach Scrivener words which contain apostrophes.

For example, John's.: If I have John and the spellcheck doesn't recognize it, I'll right-click and then click "Learn Spelling" and the red underline is cleared.

However, when I do the same with John's, the red underline does not clear, leading me to suspect there's something about the presence of the ' which is causing the learn-spell routine to fail.

I've tested this with several "apostrophied" words and have gotten the same result.

Oddly, "Ignore Spelling" does learn the apostrophes.
