I don't know if it would work with whatever it is that you're using, but when my spell-check--Word, not KES-- shows an error for something like those compound words or proper names, I "add" it and then it doesn't show again--at least until the next time I open the file to work, and after one or two of those it leaves the word alone until I do the final spell-check.
