Why don't you simply use the default that's defined by the dictionary 
(at least for ispell dictionaries the default value is defined 
somewhere)? For German which is famous for the 
Donaudampfschifffahrtskapitänsmütze "skip run-together words" should be 
enabled, but I don't think that it should be enabled for English (or 
did I miss that in English now also words can be simply concatenated to 
form composita?).

From man ispell:
"The -B and -C options control how ispell handles run-together words, 
such as "notthe" for "not the". If -B is specified, such words will be 
considered as errors, and ispell will list variations with an inserted 
blank or hyphen as possible replacements. If -C is specified, 
run-together words will be considered to be legal compounds, so long as 
both components are in the dictionary, and each component is at least 
as long as a language-dependent minimum (3 characters, by default). 
This is useful for languages such as German and Norwegian, where many 
compound words are formed by concatenation. (Note that compounds formed 
from three or more root words will still be considered errors). The 
default for this option is language-dependent; in a multi-lingual 
installation the default may vary depending on which dictionary you
