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

enabled, but I don't think that it should be enabled for English (or

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
